We made the first table in the photos above for a client at stratton moountain vermont in 1992. They recently sold the house and shipped the pool table to their home in Connecticut. We got to revisit it and disassemble it for shipping …It looked pretty good after 17 years and still played like a million bucks. In this blog post I detailed the dis assembly process and posted a few pictures of the rather nice house it was in … The 4th and 5th and 6th photos are some of the other tables we have built over the years using what I refer to as the ’$100,000. Article’ in Fine Woodworking magazine in 1989 … Here's a link to the article by Paul Bowman. You may have to have a subscription to FWW to view it but I’m not sure … You can also check this post here that I put on my blog when we were building the table in the 6th photo above … Pool tables are fun, and aside from the cushion work, are not terribly complicated projects … all for now … jets and patriots … dan
