I'm looking to find a USA made Billiard Table builder of 10', 11' or 12' tables that I can buy unassembled parts from. The closer to me the better.
I'm in Roanoke, VA; that's 4 hours west of D.C. , 4 hours east of Knoxville, TN , 3 hours north of Greensboro, NC , and just below the bottom of WV.

I appreciate any leads that might be out there for me. -Collin

Don't know what you're looking for, but I'd start by first at least knowing what you're talking about....there is no such thing as an 11 or 12ft billiard tables....so, what are you looking for....if you yourself don't know?

Everyone please ignore the post from 'realdumbcobra'. 12' foot tables do exist, they are made currently by Olhausen and are called the Innsbruck Six Leg Table.

Please be a grown up and post knowledgeable advice, answers or leads only.

I'd be carefull if I were you, I didn't say there were no 12 ft pool tables built, Snooker tables are 12 foot, that is the 12 ft that Olhausen builds....but a Snooker table is NOT a BILLIARD table, and once again...there is NO SUCH TABLE BUILT....nor are there ANY 11 ft pool tables built....and never have been....so, I think you owe me an apology for your comments!

I also was puzzled to read 11' and 12' billiard table but thought that he probably meant snooker tables. But maybe he's planning to get parts to build an eleven foot table?

Is it called Football or Soccer?...it's both unless you think you control the answer.

I'm looking to help make a builder of 'tables', who isn't too big to make small deals, make some extra money and stay afloat within the wheelhouse of their business plan. If they build a 7' table or a 12' table who is to say they don't build an 11' table? I'm looking for a builder, not anyone's beliefs in what they should do in their shop.

If your embarrassed you're not as well traveled as you hoped, and you don't know a builder, you can simply say nothing and try to become more well rounded Pool Trekkie.

And back to the original question; If you know of a builder please post some contact information or names I can research.

That should not be difficult. In my experience, the 11 foot table crowd are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Olhausen - AFAIK - is your only option in America for 12 ft.
Diamond did a few 10 ft pool tables.

I invite you to investigate the power of Google.

Interestingly enough, 5 1/2 x 11 Snooker tables were available in Canada
up untill the 1970s.
American makers dropped that size in the 19th century.

Listen, you come on here looking for something....but not explaining what you're looking for....as far as parts and pieces go. Then you even ask about a size of a billiard table that not only don't, but never has existed....to some of us that really DO know this industry....it looks like you have no idea what you're talking about....so I question your request....to see if you even know something...and then you insult me?....really?....just how many people do you think there is out here building pool tables....in THIS country?

-
You need another 6x12? I've got one for sale'

To the OP- Connely, Schmidt and gandy aka later named American Heirloom are all American pool table manufacturers. I think American herlirlooom sold out but not sure to who...

Just about any cabinet or countertop shop can build pool table components easily.

From a previous life - there was a manufacturer in Canada called
National somethingoranother - I think National Billiards of Canada... maybe

The point is, they built pool and snooker tables that were clones of the
old Brunswick Anniversary. A 5 1/2 x 11 size was listed.

Im just a moron, but I assumed when he asked about a Billiard table he meant the kind with no pockets. The thing I really do not understand is how the hell you play 9 ball on a table with no pockets? :confused:

Personally, I like me and Rockford's end better.

Are you refering to "production" or "custom" made? I have no idea what someone has made as a custom size snooker table, kind of like the "Z" pool table I guess, anything can be made as far as a pool table goes I guess....but a production size 11 foot pool table, no...I guess I'd have to see it to believe it, because in 30 years I've never come across one;)
