We at DK Billiards have worked on nearly every make, model, and type of pool table. I am particularly knowledgeable when it comes to Golden West pool table service. This client of ours from Fullerton, CA hired us to set up their seven-foot slate pool table in their single car garage. The ends of the table will be no problem for shooting with a 57″ inch pool cue, but the sides are a little tight. Luckily we carry billiard supplies with us and were able to supply the client with a 42-inch pool cue. I was able to save my client some cash, simply by re-stretching their pool table felt for the third and final time.
I have a particular fondness for Golden West pool tables. I learned almost everything I know from working at Golden West Billiards in Orange, CA. The place was owned by Dick Johnson and was the first Golden West dealership in Orange County. I learned my trade by working alongside co-worker John Campbell. This was back in the late 80s, and for me, it started as just a part-time summer job. It eventually blossomed into a full-time career for me which has spanned over two decades.
We have the same billiard 9′ table as your main photo (Golden West), I would like the stain/color to be darker cherry wood and I’m not sure spending the money would be worth it. Could you please tell me how much you think our billiard table is worth? becore I make a decision on what to do. Thanks, Carole
Thanks for your interest in my blog Carole. I honestly think that it would be worth the cost to strip and refinish your nine foot golden west. If you were to simply sell it and buy another in a stain you like you’d most likely only get $500. for it. Most folks aren’t looking for nine footers. Then, when and if you found a buyer you’d looking at a $4000. price tag to replace it in the stain of your liking. Having your pool table disassembled, then re-stained and finished, then re-assembled and refelted would probably cost you less than $1500. If you’re local, we can assist with the breaking down/setting up/refelting. I also know a couple of furniture restoration guys.
Bought an early ball leg 9 ft table Golden West. Table was stored many years now bought and would like instruction manual to table, Mahogany table , dark stain , , can you help with copie archival plans??? About 30+ years we think. One owner table. Now I own this heavy table!
It likely doesn’t have a manual. Your local billiard mechanic may be able to shed light on your model.
Could you tell me what my Golden West 9’ table is really. It has the leather pockets as well as the treadle style underneath the pool table. It is in very good shape. I purchased from a Dr. about 10/12 yrs. ago. It cost me $500.00 to have it moved & re-assembled. Thank you for your time.
Unfortunately, there isn’t enough information provided to give a response.
I recently purchased a Golden West 10 foot designer series pool table on Offerup. The only catch was it was disassembled, had no hardware & no felt. Wanted to know if you can please tell me what hardware & felt I need so I can assemble the table.
Your best be would be to contact Golden West Billiards in Portland, Oregon directly. Each model and production year may have different hardware. They should be able to tell you what you need.
Hello! We have had a 9 foot Golden West slate pool table crated in storage since 1990 and are looking to sell it. I believe it is the Nevada Series with leather pockets. It is complete and wrapped but has been in stored in a garage for a long long time and has some minor damage to the legs. Where would you suggest trying to sell this? Thanks for any advice on pricing as well!
Can my 9′ golden West table frame come apart to move?
