Pool Table

My wife asked for a table to put by the pool between two lounge chairs. I was cleaning out some boxes in the shop last weekend and found some left over tile from when our pool was built last year. I had some leftover red oak from building an assembly table. I put two and two together and built this table.

Thanks for looking…

Sweet Project!

The only ting better than finding enough “left overs” to make a project is to have to buy a new tool to complete it!

Great job of color coordination and recycling. I don’t see any pockets so assume all shots are made into the pool, just wondering how you keep the balls from sinking to the bottom or do you have wooden balls as well ;-)

Great job! And I’m stealing your idea. I have some tiles left over from our pool remodel a a couple of years ago.

Good looking table. I, like D. K., thought you were talking about a gaming table :-)... although I think asking what material your balls are made of is a bit personal LOL! Thanks for posting a great project, did you spline the corners?

Great Pool!

Oh and a nice table to boot. Simple (looking) but effective is always a nice way to go.

Hutch,
Really nice. Great looking table. I assume you will be setting only water and or milk beveridges on that table. The jointing looked great the color combination is a good contrast. I’m sure the boss lady is happy with it.

Thanks for all the kind words.

This is my first project and it was nice to read the comments. I still have to scrape the tiles where the stain seeped through the tape and put some poly on it since it will mostly live outside.
