Good so far, Don, if you simply want to wrap the image around the cue and let that be the visible surface. Things will get more complicated if you intend something different. Post again with more info in that case.
Proceed as follows to wrap the image around the cue: Save the image as a .jpg or .bmp and be sure its long axis is vertical. Use "Wrapped filtered image" Pattern and "Cylindrical" Wrapping to apply the image to the 3D cue. Assuming the cue's long axis is parallel to the World Z axis, use the following Wrapping parameters:
Scale around axis: 1.0
Scale along axis: 1600
Center point: (0,0,0)
Axis direction: (0,0,1)
