Earthquake Damages Pool Table

Apr 7, 2014

Legs Can’t Handle the Shake

On March 28, an earthquake rumbled through Southern California. The 5.1 tremor caused a fair bit of damage to a handful of homes near the epicenter. In nearby Brea, California, one pool table took a big jump.

This 30-year-old, one-piece slate Delta billiard table moved about 4 or 5 inches during the shaking. It’s hard to believe, but take a close look at the indentations in the carpet. At nearly 800 pounds, this pool table isn’t easily moved, but Mother Nature gave it a good shove.

We removed the rails and slate to examine the mounts of each leg. We took the pool table back to our shop to see if we can fix the damage. We will keep you updated.
