One of our recently completed pool tables. We also built a removable ping pong table top. This one was delivered to Jackson, Wy. http://roaringforkcustombilliards.com/portfolio_page/ping-pong-table/

Cool! How does the mitered walnut border work? I see this detail often enough, but I wonder how the corner miters fare with seasonal expansion and contraction of the solid panel in the middle.

Also, if you don’t mind, how much do you charge for a table like this? Looks really high-end. I’m estimating $2-3k? More? Just curious – not a potential buyer.

The Walnut your are referring to is Jatoba or also called Brazilian Cherry. Everything should be fine cause the house it went in to has a full climate control system so the temp and humidity are always the same. And there are a ton of festool dominos in it. As far as cost goes it varies greatly for each table but the materials alone for this setup was 12k. Have a good day!!

Wow! I was way off! I guess it’s a pool table too… Probably has a stone slab for the playing surface, right? Plus upholstery, all that live edge lumber.

Yes remove the ping pong table and the pool table is revealed. The playing surface is 1” thick Italian slate covered with pool felt.

This seems like a very nice pool table/ping pong table. I wish that you had a few more pictures.

Never seen a live-edge pool table before, well done. Must have been a large task.

The figure of big leaf maple is just so awesome. I love it. Excellent work. I don’t even want to know how heavy that table is.

Thank you!! They are quite labor intensive to build. I went and gave you a follow on Instagram. Support the Colorado folks.
