Before and After: Antique Ball Return

Jul 23, 2010

Some of you may remember our antique pool table with stairs job from a few months back. Well, we finally finished things up and set it up in its new (ground floor) location. We started this job in Cerritos, CA by disassembling and carrying downstairs this nine foot Brunswick-Balke-Collender pool table circa 1912. Our customer was relocating to San Diego county but needed some time to house hunt. About four months later we received a call from our customer saying he had found a home in Fallbrook, CA. We had been storing the massive slates (3 at 350 lbs. each) and the rails. We stored the slates in our shop so there would be no potential damage done by the moving company putting them into storage and taking them out of storage when new a home was found. We also recushioned  and recovered the rails (while in shop) with new Mali 10820-f cloth. So, on Tuesday morning Anthony and I loaded the slates and rails into the van and headed down to Fallbrook. I was really glad to see that the new home was a single story.
