Just joined, and I’m excited to be part of this awesome website. Here’s my latest project, tore down and refinished an 8’ Olhausen Pool Table. I stripped and refinished the entire table, removed the old blinds and replaced them with new ones. I used pocket screws for the blinds in lieu of the chincy metal clips from the factory. Bumpers were still good, but replaced the felt and sights as well. Couldn’t have a nice pool table without a light to go with it. Maple Frame doweled together, with colored glass I made from a product called Gallery Glass. I then finished it off with a wildlife scene cut with a waterjet out of mild steel. It is the centerpiece to my ManCave.

I always love a well dressed pool table. A man cave isn’t a man cave without a pool table. That light is stunning too!
