A reclaimed timber pool table is built using antique hand-hewn beams. We utilize several suppliers in the United States that dismantle old barns and salvage these historic timbers. Almost all of them were constructed in the early 1800’s. By utilizing these reclaimed materials we can preserver a little bit of history. Since these beams are cut by hand the craftsman ax marks are still visible today. Once the beam are cut to shape, the mortise and tenons can finally be cut by the craftsman.
Once we receive the timbers we begin the de-nailing and cleaning process. We use great care during the built to preserve as much of the antique joinery as possible. One of our favorite woods to use on the top rails is Wormy Chestnut. Sourcing high quality Chestnut can sometimes prove to be quite a challenge, since the top rails are crucial to a great performing pool table.
