Custom Pool Table

I built this pool table from Rocky Mountain Juniper logs harvested here in Colorado. Juniper pool tables are some of the more challenging tables to build. Since there are no flat surfaces all the sanding is done by hand. This one was delivered to a large ranch in Montana.

Greg your pool tables among other projects you’ve posted, are works of art. I do have to ask though, are there internal ball returns or drop pockets used on these tables? I guess maybe some of each? How do you handle that?

Wow! That is one of the most beautiful pool tables I have ever seen. Have to ask, do you know how much it weighed?

Fantastic, I love it. 3 legs too? something you don’t see often. I have the slate ready to make one this winter. No Juniper here but I have Red Cedar. Great job man.
