FINALLY finished my house and set up my pool room (pics) - 12-22-2007, 12:59 AM

After a two-year struggle, I finished my house (only a year late ). The table was delivered from Bangkok last week- it's an 8-foot Sovereign table made by a Thai manufacturer (been in business over 50 years and supplied the tables for the Asian championships a couple years ago)- I could have squeezed in a 9-footer and been hindered in a few spots (not to mention another foot of encroachment into the kitchen, which would have led to a major battle with the wife ), but I'm very happy with the way things ended up.

I've still got to put up a small LCD monitor and a few shelves for drinks, but it's 95% done.

I believe six of the cues were purchased from AZ.

Please try to ignore the laundry in the window- the housekeeper was running late today :

Cool- I'll check that site out- I chose b&w pics as I wanted the table and things related to it to be the only points of color in the room.

Merry Christmas to you as well- it's gonna be a hot one here.

And thanks for the rep points- finally got my third greenie.

After he gets kicked out of the way a few times he retreats to the area directly under the table- he doesn't like that as much because he can't feel the breeze from the A/C.

Real nice looking pool room, I am truly Jealous. I also really like mans best friend waiting for his turn at the table. My only suggestion is to let him win once in awhile, you do not want him to mark his territory!!!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!!!!

Beautiful room! Congratulations!

The only time he moves is in the rare event of a ball jumping off the table- he just likes to be near "dad".

Merry Christmas to you as well.

Thanks to everyone for not mentioning how much they (probably) dislike burgundy Simonis 860- it went too nicely with the room to go with anything else.

My dog has had a total of two 'accidents' in the house... on the leg of my table was one of them. I am a strong supporter of animal rights, but had my wife not been there that day... the dog's future as an indoor dog may have been in question.

Congrats on your new room!

I backpacked through Koh Samui way back in 1990, and had a blast.

I'd sure trade it for Northwest Indiana, where I'm freezing my butt off now.

Your next move is training your dog how to move around and bark only during your opponent's shots. I'm working on that now with my Great Dane.
