Joe was born and raised to be a cuemaker. He began working on cues with his father, Jerry, and completed his first "solo" cue at the age of 12.
His career has been in partnership with Jerry helping to build the J. Pechauer Custom Cue reputation for impeccable quality.
As the Pechauer name continued to gain popularity as a great value for serious pool players, Joe felt an urge to show his skills by creating unique, one of a kind cues with intricate detail and exotic materials not normally seen in a Pechauer cue.
Each cue is comprised of materials such as superior Birds-eye Maple, Ebony or other exotic woods to which hundreds of inlays are added. The inlays are made of genuine pre-ban Elephant Ivory, Sterling Silver, Malachite, Turquoise, Mother of Pearl, Abalone, Amboyna Burl, Snakewood, Holly and Pink Ivory.
The finishing touch is added using exotic wraps of African Crocodile, Alligator, Ostrich, Lizard, Llama, or Exotic wood.
As each cue nears completion, Joe authenticates it with his Joseph Pechauer signature and numbers it 1 of 1.
Joe makes no more than twelve of these collector pieces per year.
