at this link. i hope to get better at this video thing as time goes on, but it gives you an idea of how the table plays.
and here we have our first attempt at acquiring a pool table in about 1989. this one was in rough shape when i bought it for $500. and i had to make new curly maple rails, new legs, and strip the peeling veneer off the body and paint it, but it was worth the effort, though that one sold too before i finished it.
the 'mark of zorro', table a version of my original beidermeier inspired table
simpler version of the same style ... 2012 ... more photos here
weston, vermont ...
and finally, greenwich, ct
and then our next diversion/trend was for some 'post and beam' style tables. this one was for a builder friend who made the base and leveled it up, we just did the slate work and built the rails and the did the cushions and felt work ...
this one came next in 2009 and it went to martha's vineyard. will and i took it down one crystal clear january weekend ... i never saw the vineyard quiet like that. we felt like we owned the place. the blog post about this one is in my list of 'popular posts' off to the right there. that post can get you started if you are interested in building your own pool table.we delivered that one to sugarbush, vt just last december and here is a link to a video of it in action ... more video links to follow soon i hope.
pool .. i love it. i think i'll go to my man cave and shoot a few racks right now ...
sam and will, (now 30 and 28), on the day of the original set up in our previous home. this was in the very early 90's i think. no date on the photo and that period of our lives was pretty much a blur.
