My home room saga - 05-09-2018, 06:05 AM

I know there is a "show your home room" thread but this will take several posts over several days so I'm starting a separate thread. I've been away from the forum for a few years due to other priorities, not playing much, work related travel and generally putting pool on the back burner. I'm in a medium size ranch house I built about 11 or so years ago. It has a full "walk out" level basement that up until a year ago was a workshop/junkyard full of stuff I kept only because I had the room for it. A few years back, after one too many bad experiences playing in local halls/bars, I decided to get a table at home. I had a 80 year old Brunswick in my previous home...never again. I found this Gold Crown III in a bar an hour away, $500 + new cloth + a 15' x 25' chunk of Home Depot carpet and I was back in business. Not pretty but the table played great and was a gathering spot most every week for a few years.

Step One: November 2016, sell the table and clean the junkyard.

Step Two: Buy a bunch of wood and write some checks.

Looked a lot better before...and I think it is gonna look a lot better later!


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

Are you planning a design theme around it? The atmosphere of the space can make a big difference.


Quality by Design!

It's done actually, space atmosphere and all. Just need a few days to document it.

Both, the 0ld Brunswick sold before I moved, The Gold Crown III was a great deal but I didn't want to store it for a year, wasn't crazy about the look of it with what I wanted to do and was able to make a nice profit selling. I did stick with a Gold Crown but a different one I found 5 states away. You'll see.

Very illogical!! The way you are making us wait!!

Showing a little more leg, partially completed bar area. Table wasn't up yet but will sit to right of bar. It's actually within inches of where old Gold Crown III sat in the unfinished space.
