We start by purchasing “Eastern Knotty Pine”, one of the hardest materials in the typically soft, pine wood species.
This material was often used in barns made many years ago. It’s more durable than often given credit for and when finished properly becomes a very stable material, which is important to us because a billiard table is more than a beautiful piece of furniture; it needs to support approximately 450 lbs. of slate and we need to get the table perfectly level in the customer’s home so they can enjoy the game forever.
The quality of our raw materials is very important to make sure this can happen each time.
We hand-select each piece of wood used in every table so we can avoid any knots that may be much bigger than 1” in size.
We love the knots and natural imperfections in the wood, because that’s what creates the look and style of this table, but we have to worry about stability and the lifetime of your finish if they much bigger than what you see.
