    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I'm probably missing something, but what part of building a pool table would need something that wide? The bed itself should be slate and I can't imagine the under bed is made of anything other than plywood or another dimensionally stable man-made product. Or is he surfacing the slate somehow? (which would be very very cool!)

    No they import the Slate by the container full already flattened. He uses it to run the side frames and top rails through for the higher end tables they build a few thousand tables a year all the inner frame work is lam beams

    Jay,

    Please post or PM the table company's name or info. I used to play a lot of pool and still keep up with a good many pool players. May be able to help people on both ends and I daydream about owning a ten footer someday. Interested in another project at the moment, an English eight ball table.

    Jay,

    The information is much appreciated anyway. Maybe I'll find an old seven foot Valley or similar to do a conversion on. A crazy idea floating in my head but it will probably die of loneliness before I get anywhere near productive with it.

    Thank You !
