Maker of pool cues from 1994 to 2003 in San Antonio, Texas, and from 2003 to present in Dickson, Tennesee.
The idea of making cues first occurred to William "Woody" Woodworth in the mid-1980s, but it wasn´t until 1994 that he put the lathe to his first cue stick. He was fulfilling a promise he´d made to the 1991 BCA National Team eight-ball champions, of which he was a member. The promise was to make cues for each of the players. None expected the souvenir cues to be replacements for their far more expensive cues until Bill Ryan, the first team member to try a Woodworth Cue, thought the cue was perfectly balanced, feeling as though it didn´t have any weight variance. In explaining this feeling, Woody said that he tries to create a fulcrum-like effect when constructing a cue; the balancing weight is put forward of the hand on the butt of the cue, just as it is in a golf club.
Born in Lackawanna, New York, Woody migrated to the warmer climate in Texas in the mid-1970s, bringing with him over 20 years of experience as a custom furniture maker, three years as a draftsman and two years as a design engineer with a Fortune 500 company. All of this experience has helped him become an accomplished cuemaker, but his love for the game of pool and considerable talent as a player were the catalysts that have earned Woody the most respect.
After 26 years in Texas, Woody moved to Tennesee in 2003. He wanted to be more centrally located for tournaments and shows. It seemed to him that it took at least a day and a half to drive to his favorite events from Texas. Working from his new shop that he built outside Dickson, amidst the drone of country music from his portable radio, you´ll find Woody fine-tuning a cue in the main working area or in a separate climate-controlled room. Surrounding him are an arsenal of over one thousand shafts hanging from the ceiling going through the eighteen-month-long curing process and a display of exotic woods from around the world that will be used in several year´s worth of future custom cues.
Like all cuemakers, Woody wants to make the perfect cue, but even more important to him are his satisfied customers. What started as a part-time hobby has mushroomed into a full-fledged business. On March 17 2005, Woody started engraving his logo, along with the month and year of production, into the butt caps of his cues.
If you are interested in talking to Woody about a new cue or cue that needs to be repaired, or if you just want to talk shop with him, you can contact him at Woodworth Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
