well, we’re on a roll this year with the pool tables. this is our third one in the last four months. at one point in november, we actually had two in the shop at the same time. (fourth photo). our son will, (the banjo maker), pretty much built and installed this one on his own. i helped carry in the slates and the other parts, but in most of this installation, since he had done all the work on it, i was the helper, not the guy in charge. it was a smooth installation, at a new house about two hours from the shop, and the floor was precisely and completely, 100% level. i don’t believe i have ever had that happen before. bolt the frame together, add the slate support frame, put the straightedge and four foot level on it and bingo, perfect in all directions. on a polished concrete floor no less. master concrete folks, or ‘win the lottery’ type coincidence. again, we used the fine woodworking article by paul bowman from 1989 as our guide. i really should call that guy and thank him. for more photos and comments about the table in process, there are two posts on my dorset custom furniture blog. you can get to the first post from a link in the first sentence of that post and links to our other pool table blog posts at the end of the first post. (got that?) also, there is a video of me missing some easy shots on it at this link. after we finished the installation. rack ‘em up.
