Pool and Billiards Table Materials Used

Once you’ve decided to buy a pool table, you’ll want the best materials used in the construction.

Sub-par materials will never last as long as your love for the sport. A sturdy table made in Australia by Quedos from eco-sustainable Australian wood, hand measured and placed slate, covered with the most durable and shrink resistant felt, meticulously measured rails and pockets, and professionally installed will result in a valuable of furniture that will last a lifetime and quickly become a family treasure.

Anything less than the best will end with numerous repairs to surface materials, cracked slates, chipped or scratched woodwork, and an uneven playing surface.

All of these potential problem areas can result in expensive repairs that can be avoided with the initial purchase of a top grade, handmade pool table. To understand the value of high-quality materials, read this post.

Making pool tables is not for the faint of heart. Sure, you can find tips and guides on building a pool table with a quick Google search. But be forewarned: it’s not a do-it-yourself project to embark on if you don’t have the skill, know-how, and passion.

When looking for wood for furniture, there are a few considerations to make. Often, it is a matter of preference, although it makes sense to look into the timber’s grain structure, the type of wood (soft vs hard), and the tree itself from where the timber came from. If you have been contemplating on what wood is best for your furniture piece, you may have come across the Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras as one of your top choices.

Pool and snooker tables require exacting standards to select the timber used in production. We want to ensure that every piece makes sense in the design and that the table outlasts generations. At Quedos, our craftsmen use many hardwoods in our tables, but we frequently come back to our favourite Australian native species.

There may be nothing more iconic than native hardwood species with their long, storied past in Australia.

Like fine furniture, grand pianos, and other heirloom-quality products worthy of being handed down from one generation to the next, pool and billiard tables can be major investments.

Most quality tables cost thousands of dollars and offer several variations of wood, slate, cloth, felt, and more.

To make sure your investment is a sound one and provide you with not just years but decades of enjoyment, you’ll need to learn a little about pool tables and how to spot a quality pool table in a sea of cheap knock-offs.

Wood is the fibrous substance of a tree. It’s the very thing that provides support for the tree so that it will stay stable and grow. While some people tend to use the term “wood” to mean timber, these two terms are not the same. In Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, timber is sawn wood and processed wood products. They are used for home construction, decking, cladding, and making furniture pieces, such as pool, billiard, and snooker tables.
