I did this pool set for a very good friend in 2007. The set shares the same penthouse home as the “Panaginip bed I posted months ago http://lumberjocks.com/projects/25727 Everything from the size, slate, felt and other accessories are all on the professional level. For all pool player Lumberjocks, It was Efren “Bata Reyes’ ( the magician) & Django Bustamante’s pro who set up the table for the slate, banks and simonis felt. He too was excited then to finish the set up so he could try it out. I only built two of these. I’m lucky I still have the other one at home. I used amboyna burl for the accents on the 6 pockets. The legs are hand carved form an 8’x8’ stock of saplungan post. The top rails are iron wood and the side skirts are all in Narra. The cue rack is made of Dao while the lighting fixture is stack laminates of various species of wood with opal glass as a diffuser. We’ve had a lot of good pool games on this table.
ALL WOODS USED FOR THIS PROJECT ARE RECYCLED WOOD AS WITH ALL OF MY OTHER PROJECTS.
