Tips To Buying Pool Tables
Pool tables are once in a lifetime purchase, and will generally stay in the family for generations. For this reason, before going ahead with a purchase, it is absolutely essential to take some considerations. Buying pool tables can be similar to buying functional piece of furniture such as a sofa. You want the piece to suit your style and the style of your room, yet at the same time you want the piece to be durable through its usage. The sturdiest pool tables have a beam running down the middle of the table that connects with the crossing beams. A center beam gives good support to both the slate pool table top as well as to the entire table, but be sure the table you buy does not just have a “drop-in” beam as that is unsupported and purely cosmetic. Veneer can be just as good as solid wood and adds a protective coating to the wood. Wood-laminated lumber construction is stronger and more durable than dimensional lumber construction in a pool table. Wood-laminated lumber is glued hardwood stock, while dimensional lumber is only squared and milled.
Larger sized pool tables offer more challenge. The width of the playing surface of any size of pool table should always be half of the table’s length so that official regulation standards are met. Quality pool tables weigh up to 1,000 pounds (453.6 kg). Be sure the floor you are considering putting the table on can handle the weight of the table and players walking around it. Weaker floors may flex slightly which may affect the balance of the table.
