Woods Used: 70+ year old Hickory fencepost. This cue is a gift to a landowner & son who have generously allowed me to scout spalted wood on his/their property. A longtime good neighbor I greatly admire and appreciate. They’re farmers. They work nonstop, are always kind and generous, and their kids work as hard as they do. Absolute salt of the earth. Prized neighbors — and a custom cue built from one of their old fenceposts… I hope they love the stick.

Hello, I’m Clayton Lindemuth, the grit lit author responsible for the Baer Creighton series and more. I started building cues as a way to keep the creative engines going while waiting on the muse to strike, and now I spend almost all my time in the shop. I focus on spalted, live edge, and burl cues that I build from hardwoods I harvest, process, and stabilize myself, drawn from the woods around me in Hormtown, Pa.
I use cue building processes learned from masters of the industry. Video courses, books, mentors, and forever testing new methods. Learn about my building process from my YouTube channel and be sure to subscribe. One of my first 1,000 subscribers will win the spalted cue, Fanfare for the Common Blue.
I will work to my utmost to ensure your cue is how you want it and that our relationship is always warm.
Feel free to use the payment plan if purchasing this cue before completion.
I’ll consult you before building shafts to be sure to meet your preferred specs — collar material/color, tip diameter, ferrule color, material, that sort of thing.
