Over the years I have made some pretty cool friends in this hobby, and one of my closest is Jack and Toots Justis. Two of the nicest people anyone would ever care to meet. I consider Jack a real friend and I am proud to call him that, I am not sure if he knows how much I think of him, but it's true and he is just such a classy guy that I can't say enough good about him as a person. Now that doesn't begin to scratch the surface of his skill and ability in case making.

I normally don't share this case because I know that Jack stepped outside his comfort zone to create something special for me personally and I don't want him to get 25 calls from people saying make me a case with (fill in the blanks) on it like you did for that assneck JimBo.

But since nobody is looking here I am going to share this with the few who are hanging in.
This is a true one of a kind case and I doubt Jack will be doing anything even close to this again.

The case is Black Leather 3X6 with his new style interior, the case can hold like 20 cues all smoooshed in there, but I am not comfortable with any more then 3 butts and 7 shafts.

I just have to say, I really appreciate all the recent threads here. You obviously do things outside of the box, and I'm glad you got the cue and case makers you've worked with to do the same. It makes for a seriously entertaining and unique experience.

Jim, you never cease to amaze me.
You have all of this stuff with the skull theme but it is done in such a tasteful and classy manner.

Jack's work is amazing, as always.

It's all been said but WOW! The old school undertaker with the wheel barrow is uber cool both in design and execution. What a cool idea.

The case is sweet. But I LOVE the tikkler-esque title you gave the thread!
