Schmelke now reside in a 15,000+ square foot building which houses a Game Room Outlet and custom pool cue building and pool cue repair departments. Schmelke Pool/Billiard Cues began with Duard and Richard Schmelke, brothers who enjoyed playing pool. They saw a need for custom quality pool cues in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and began making and repairing custom pool cues (sticks) in a small shop behind their home. In the late 1940's Duard decided to make two-piece billiard and pool cues on his own and remained a one-man operation until 1969. In 1969 his son, Jim Schmelke joined Schmelke Cues . A third generation craftsman joined in 1998, David Schmelke.
