So You Think Your Pool Table is Heavy?

Jul 3, 2010

Everyone knows pool tables are heavy. And most of the heft comes from the slate and sometimes a very heavy frame. But yesterday we came across pool table legs filled with concrete. We were called out to a home in Villa Park, CA to disassemble this 8′ three piece slate pool table. The homeowners are moving out and wanted to transport their pool table safely into storage. Everything about the pool table was standard, except when we got down to the legs. When we detached the legs from the frame, I noticed something peculiar. The legs were all filled with concrete. I have never seen anything like this before. I guess whoever built this “custom” table, didn’t want it to easily slide around when playing pool on it???
