Disassembling a Four Piece Slate Billiard Table

Jan 16, 2016

This Bullock Billiard table from the early 1900s needed to be disassembled in preparation for a long distance move. The Dana Point, California residents are moving and needed their antique taken apart and slates crated for the moving company to pack and transport.

This hundred year old table, like all antiques, required a bit extra time and knowledge when working on it.The antique top mount pockets and rails were removed using a special key is used to remove the bolts. Special crates were constructed to house the extra thick, four pieces of slate. Cloth was carefully removed, neatly folded and placed with the hardware to ensure reassembly goes smoothly. When the table reaches its destination, the local installer will have all the pieces to get our customer playing again.
