My Gold crown 1 - 04-28-2011, 07:43 AM

Hello all. So i am somewhat new to the forum, did a lot of surfing around but not much posting in the last 2 months while I was searching for a home table. After much research I came to the decision on a Gold Crown, which is what I shot on for 7 years at my LPH before it closed down. Now it was time to find one, so after 2 months of craigslist and ebay I came across Pat O'donnell and Bob Deturk from advanced billiards solutions. I was able to drive out to there shop and set up a deal on a 1963 Gold Crown 1. I am happy to report that on Tuesday Pat and team delivered and set up my holy grail.

I can only say how pleased I was throughout the whole process; from meeting Bob at the shop, answering all my questions, returning my annoying calls every other day and most of all being careful not to scratch my new hard wood floors (my wife would have killed me .

I just wanted to throw out my appreciation and state that I would recommend them to anyone.

I have attached some photos of the process and the finished product. Thanks again!!!

Pat and crew do top shelf work.
Looks great - not surprising.

Nice beautiful 2 tone refinished GC1, Bob & Pat & crew do some great work, some of the best work I know of in the Northeast that's for sure. Did they finish off the pockets in this picture so you couldn't see any wood from the slate frame under the slate pocket, or leave it as is...just wondering...everyone has a different way of finishing the pockets. Table looks beautiful....lot of hours into fixing that one up right...great job Bob

I will have to check that out... I did not notice any wood when the inserts were placed in.

Love those early 60's GCs....favorite tables ever. Enjoy!

(You gotta find the old corner chrome pieces with the ash tray though, those are just too cool)

Agreed!! Pat and I were actually talking about those on the install. I saw a picture of the table on the forum with the ashtray inserts about a week ago and just love the look of those things!!

GC I's rock.

I can almost hear the break shot "crack" in that room. Between the hardwood and the fireplace, must be some awesome accoustics. Best table ever, bar none IMHO.
