I had bought a cheap pool table when I started college. It got alot of use and wear & tear. After I got married I decided it was time to rebuild my pool table. The original table was mostly made out of particle board and plastic veneer(which did not survive the college life), however the slate was in excellent condition. The only remaining original parts are the slate pieces and and the frame on which it sat. It turned out pretty good and the cue rolls nice and straight, unfortuneatly the balls don’t find the pockets as much as I would like.
