Ariel Carmeli made custom furniture
before working at Best Billiards in Santa Anna, California. All of the
employees there learn to do minor cue repairs as a service to their
customers. Ariel enjoyed working on cues, and he admired the artistry and
craftsmanship that went into them. Several of the top cuemakers visited Best
Billiards, giving Ariel the opportunity to question them about repair and
construction techniques. He found that all of the top cuemakers have
different ways of doing things, each believing that theirs is the best.
Ariel had his own ideas about making cues, a culmination of the advice he
had received plus the experience he had doing repairs. He started making
cues in the Best Billiards shop in 1994.
