so, we more or less wrapped up another pool table last thursday ...
it will be very similar to the one above, from 2012,
only an 8 footer instead of a 9 footer.
we started with the cad drawing from a couple 8 footers we made in 2016.
from that drawing, we made some new jigs for sam to weld up the parts
jig for the ends off the cnc
the side rail jig was made once the parts were cut from the cad
drawing with the proper lengths and angles ..
before sam could weld, Kristian had to grind and sand the steel parts.
some assembly still required ...
fabricating the cushions, rails, and blinds.
we cut the pockets for the brass diamond on the cnc
seeders instruments business long enough to felt the rails in
black simonis cloth for us ... he has done many rails in the past
when he was working in the woodshop with me,
but none since 2016 ... he hasn't lost his touch though
we may not see this table fully assembled until it gets
to its new home in northern michigan. it will likely be
leaving this coming week or next and we don't have
enough clean room in either the woodshop or the metal shop
where it can go ... the base has been assembled as have the
slate, rails and blinds, so it will be up to the mechanics who
set it up to send us a picture of it in place ...
