How to choose Pool Tables
When look at buying pool tables, there are two important factors
to take into consideration.
What materials have been used to construct the pool table
is the first. The best material is 100% solid hardwood, no
wood veneers, processed particle board, laminates or other
artificial materials anywhere in the table. The slate should
be at least an inch thick. If the slate is under 1 inch thick
then the table can be unstable and risk being damaged if being
moved or bumped into. The finish to these slate pool tables
is very important to, with polished varnishes or rubbed oil
being the best. Cheap polyurethane tends to give off a cloudy
finish over time.
How the pool tables are constructed
Each manufacturer will advise that their construction
is superior to other manufactures but each have pros and cons.
When look at pool table construction, have a look at the dado
joints in the base of the slate bed pool table. These give
more strength than normal screws and brackets so giving the
pool table much more stability. At the centre of the beam should
be hard wood cross members on a slate bed pool table. Pool
tables which have been made with a cheap design can easily
be detected by bumping into them slightly. If it moves or vibrates
then this will only get worse over time so buying a quality
slate bed pool table is recommended.
