Maker of pool cues from 2001 to present in Austintown, Ohio.
Mike Martin began playing pool at the age of 15 at "The Q-Club" in Austintown, Ohio. The owner of the club, Michael Steiner, also did cue repairs. This is where Mike learned how to do minor cue work. This is also where he developed a love of the game and an interest in cues.
Mike had his first band saw at about the age of 9 or 10. He always enjoyed working with wood. He was always building just about anything he could. After high school, Mike tried a number of jobs, including roofing, plumbing, carpentry, and construction. Then he started building cabinets, bookcases and hutches and really enjoyed it. In the spring of 2001, he started building pool cues. He opened Mahoning Valley Billiards in Youngstown, Ohio, where he did some repair work, and soon after, he bought his first lathe. It was just a matter of time before he was living his dream of building beautiful and great hitting cues. He loves turning an exotic piece of wood into a functional piece of artwork.
Mike has three lathes in his shop. One of them is a CNC, which is used to turn round stock only. A hand pantograph is used for points and smaller work.
Mike´s cues can be identified by his signature and the date the cue was finished. Some earlier cues had a real diamond inlaid into the butt of the cue. Later cues have his signature in the butt cap.
