The first shots were Corner 5 system (?) kicks .... right in the heart ! Tonight I'll mark the table and install the rest holders ( one on each side) and the rack holder. I'll also put up a temporary 4 bulb light, haven't finished the LED light because I am not yet comfortable with the design.

WOW that table looks great, I didn't like it with the red strips, it's amazing how a small change can really change the whole look, kind of reminds me of an Anniversary by Brunswick.

Jim <---done busting on Dave now, the rest is just frosting on the cake

It looks great Dave. Enjoy!

Let me know how the LED fixture works out. Sometimes I find LED's to be harsh and I'm not sure I'd use them over a pool table. However, I'm sure I haven't seen all varieties of LED lights.

It certainly is nice to have a table again, another step forward back to where I was before.

When I bought the table the seller said "yer lucky to get the red stripes, the black stripes are boring". :roll: The red strips went to the landfill last week.

The light stuff is in the way now, so soon .... soon ... but now I'll hit a few :mrgreen:

Does that mean a wife bitching and moaning at you again? (they all do, you know)

Aren't you better off with this table than where you were before? A nine footer vs. a smaller one?

LOL .... no wife and no plans. Thankfully before she didn't bitch much, we mostly just went our own way. And yes, this table is a significant upgrade, from a basic home 8' Brunswick Bristol II to a commercial 9' Dufferin Challenger. It's just taken a bit to get my home set up with the ammenities I had before. It was great to get the shop established a while back, and now I have a table again. :mrgreen: Next I will replace the 35 yo fridge and stove, then I'll be really cooking ! :lol:

The chair rail is made from slot wall. This will support various shelves, beer holders, and cue rests that can be moved to wherever desired. So far I have one bent piece of wire and a million ideas.

I love the slat wall chair rail idea, good innovation for a canook.

Is that cue purpleheart???

Jim <----Wondering how much Dave is shooting these days

I also like the slot wall chair rail. That is a great idea that I never would have thought of.

The room is looking very good.

The slot rail idea came from my best buddy, they guy shown in a few other pictures. He has a lot of retail and hack-carpentry experience , so this was his idea to hide a terrible drywall seam. The finish is transparent urathane right on the MDF. That way any wear marks will be easy to fix, and the color works with the grass cloth and floor.

The cue is purpleheart, a 2001 ultra-jointed Lambros, an absolute dream to play with (and I do ... a lot ... maybe an hour to two a day).

Thanks guys.

Dave

Now two reasons to say "fuck" :evil: ... Was gonna post a pic of the last coat (#7?) of polyurethane on the bar, the one that is peeling off like badly sunburned skin, but neither tapatalk or safari will let me.

Dave <-- :cry: ... and saying "fuck" .... twice

Dave:

It sounds as if you waited too long between the coats. If it fully dries, you have to scuff it back (220-320 dry is fine) and then apply the final coat.

If it is still 'stinky' (smelly) it is usually OK and will 'bite'. But, if it is dried, you are trying to make a finish stick on glass, and that doesn't work too well (unless it is Shellac).

Can you get the 'sunburn' off? If so, block sand it with 220-320 and then apply your final coat. The sanding will help make it flatter at the end too (which is nice!), and it should look like a million bucks (well, several hundred anyway).

Good luck!
