Why can't dymondwood be rounded???

What is Dymondwood? Is it basically a plastic laminate made to look like wood?

Basically they take wood and impregnate it with a resin that makes it more stable, more dense and harder.

From Rutland Plywood Corp. website:

"Sometimes refererred to by the generic name of COMPREG, DymondWood® is a highly engineered wood/plastic composite, that has the physical and mechanical properties of high density hardwood, acrylic, polycarbonate plastics and brass. Here, brightly dyed northern hardwood veneers are combined with engineering grade resins, heat and pressure to create a product that has the best characteristics of each. DymondWood® is distinguished by its unique strength, durability, dimensional stability, and weather and moisture resistance as compared to regular wood."

Dymondwood is awesome. Greg Sullivan demonstrated it's benefits to me. He took a cue ball and bounced it (slammed it) on the rail of one of the ProAm tournament tables. CB bounced up like 3-4 feet and caught it. Asked me to try and find a dent. I couldn't find a dent. I have good eyesight too and can be fanatical about detail. Not even a tiny dent.

I think Dymondwood is a phenolic impregnated wood. I could be wrong. But it's very strong. Very scratch resistant. Very dent resistant.

A local pool room has had a dymondwood ProAm for a long time now. At least 10 years. The rails are still smooth and look new. People slam cues into it all the time. The cues get the dents.


If you want a table for long term survival, such as a pool room full of bangers - the ProAm is probably the best.

That's a nice table. I have money aside ready to pull the trigger as soon as I get a place big enough to store it. Home tables are an investment but I think they are definitely worth every penny.

Gorgeous table.....most people see the Diamond ProAms and think it's the standard of Diamond tables. The ProAm is a great table and very easy to move and set up for tournaments.
The Professional model is in my opinion a much more attractive table. It takes much longer to set it up, but for home use it's a great lookin piece of furniture.
I have a Professional in my house and love it. So do all my buddies who come over and play.
On your Professional there are different legs/pedestals. I like how it gives it a more open appearance. It's also got tons of decals, must be a tournament used model?

Yes, it is the TV table used at the 2005 U.S. Open. Diamond is "refurbishing" it for me.

I love that wood so much that the stickers are an eyesore. That would be the first thing I'd do is take them off including the big Diamond.
Super table!!!

The decals are already off. The Diamond logo will stay. I was torn between this table and a ProAm but after talking with Glen, aka therealkingcobra, I have no doubts this table will be in my game room in the January time frame. Thanks Glen and I look forward to meeting you and watching you work your magic.
