In either case, it looks like you are having fun.
I think my table is a kind of hybrid. This table , I'm pretty sure, I've been built in Canada and back then in Canada the vast majority of table was snooker table. My theory (may be I'm wrong) is that Brunswick was building pool table with snooker component. The rails have the thickness of a pool table (1-3/4") and the pocket was angle cut like pool, the cushions had the height to work with 2-1/4" balls and the casting have the opening of a pool table.

But on the other hand you're right saying that the cushion and probably the frame are snooker.
