Table's wood & finish

All exposed surfaces except playing rails are finished in walnut. Grooves in apron are finished in off-white color. Playing rails have special walnut burn-resistant finish. All concealed wood surfaces are treated with a moisture repellent. The aluminum corner castings are anodized and polished.

Table construction

Aprons. Select cabinet woods co-toured to flow into rounded edge of rail and corner castings. Fitted with hardwood attaching member for assembly to rail. Roomy ball rack in foot end apron of gully and pocket tables has four compartments holding five balls each.

Base Frame. The massive base frame is constructed of hardwoods, consisting of two side rails, two end rails, and stretchers. The two end rails, longitudinal stretchers, and horizontal cross members give a positive support to slate bed.

Rail bolts fasten directly through the slate into bottom of the rail, eliminating any vibration and increasing accuracy with perfect rebound angles.

Rail bolts are handy to get at-can be easily tightened by the operator at any time. It is not necessary to remove the table aprons to tighten rail bolts.
