« Part 4: Veneering the feet - good looking and secretly functional Part 5 of Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series series no next part

A couple of weeks ago I Blogged for help here at LumberJocks (Link Here) with what size / shape /scale to make the corbels for the Pool Table. It was a great discussion and also a nice collaborative process with all who participated. There’s a great group of woodworkers from all skill levels here, and it was nice to hear to various viewpoints.

The corbels are finished, and I think they came out great. The next installment in the video series covers the design and construction of the corbels. Have a look and let me know what you think!

John, great explanation and presentation. I really like the veneering process that you did. Watching this was time well spent!

I am going to build one of these someday. Great design. My father always said being good at pool was the signs of a misspent youth…..right before he’d sink a 3 cushion shot. I’m a fair shot myself and would love to have such a beautiful table.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Bob – that’s a great little story about your father’s wisdom. That would be a great slogan to put on a plaque in the pool room.

I can’t wait to actually play on this thing someday. I am too many years out of practice. I used to be pretty darn good, lets see if I can get back in the groove.
