Why Pool Tables Don’t Make Good Perches

Sep 23, 2015

Pool table moving is a specialized service we offer to clients all over Southern California. This particular pool table move was an interesting lesson on how to care for your pool table pockets too. Our client has a large parrot that he used to let sit on his pool table pockets. I guess the bird like the feel of the leather and started shredding the pockets. We started disassembling the eight foot Imperial pool table downstairs. We carefully removed the felt because we’ll be refelting it upstairs using the same felt. Once we found the best position in the upstairs gameroom for this 8′ slate pool table we proceeded to relevel the 3 piece slates. We’ll complete this billiard table service by installing a new set of leather pool table pockets. Polly want a new leather pocket?
