How would a solid surface material

Like Corian or Livingstone work for the plates? Is it flat enough? Just a thought.

story of it as you go!
A Yahoo search had lots of plans: http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=yt...ei=UTF-8&type=

I looked a while ago and found nothing except like the plans Bill mentioned. I''re all generally the same construction its just the aesthetics that change. As for "regulation being a fancy word for twice as long as it is wide" thats not true. All pool tables are geometrically the same. 4 x 8, 3 1/2 x 7 or 3 x 6. Regulation is an 8 ft table. Nothing would be good to replace slate and it is at least 1/2 the cost of a new table if not more.

So now if you want to build a nice pool table this is my suggestion. Find a used 8''t you use MDF built up to say 1 1/2 or 2 1/4 thick instead of slate? I''t you use MDF built up to say 1 1/2 or 2 1/4 thick instead of slate? I''t the "official standard" tournament size billiard table but is the most common "regulation" size. There''ve had a table with a plywood surface that wasn''ve had one with an MDF surface that also wasn''re individually lighter that way...)

Here are a couple links I''t consider tables in other countries so I guess my statement might not be totally correct. English tables are larger, but snooker is big over there. snooker tables are 5x10 and 6x12 as a rule and I don''ve never drilled in that slate I was told by one of the companies that it is not an easy task. it would also be a crime to skimp on a table by not using slate when he wants to use jatoba or ribbon stripe mahogany for the rest of the table.

Ah, snooker. That doesn''m concerned. The link I sent that was the pool/billiards association, or whatever, is where I was basing my information. I was always under the impression that English tables were smaller (when not counting snooker) but I could be wrong about that.

That slatron stuff isn''s effectively MDF. I think it is technically a little different, but it looks and feels pretty close to MDF to me.

I totally agree with your suggestion about starting with a used table and building/customizing from there. That''ve found plenty of 8''ll side with rrbrown on the used table though one needs to be aware of what they are getting. Most larger cities with colleges have a regular supply of used tables for sale.

Semper fi rr.

Except no substitutes, slate all the way. Chipped, or cracked slate can be repaired with filler and sandpaper.

Making your own table is fun and relatively easy. If you use the right materials and take enough care in building it

I would like to build a table as well and the old table I had would have been the perfect one to rob the guts out of for a quality nice looking table.

I would check craigslist for a used table......slate top only. Don''t take the chance.

Another tip I picked up from the felt installer which may be common knowledge is use a long level to mate the slate pieces and adjust the screws as you need to. Melt some bees wax with a map torch on the joint and scrape with a razor to have perfect transition point for the ball to not skip. May seem like overkill but he was a perfectionist and it''s not a bad idea...
The guys that did mine on original set-up used dry wall plaster and trowel with a razor blade to finish.

I really like the craftsman style table above. I may redo mine in that style if I ever finish a few other projects.
