Nice GC1 ..... mine has leg levelers as well
I think you are confusing the room of the OP ( he has baseboards) to that of @rexus31, he has the brick in his garage space.Looking at your room nice job/colors. I'm sure your going to protect those off table balls, from contacting those bricks, with maybe a 6'' base moulding.
I think you are referring to my room. That isn't brick. It's rigid foam insulation between the structure of my garage doors covered in brick pattern peel and stick wall paper. I used it on my garage doors (west facing) and between the studs of the south facing wall. My room is a little tight for a 9' table so insulating and drywalling was not in the cards. I did insualte and drywall the ceiling though. All things considered, it looks decent and provides good insulation so it stays nice and cool in there during he summer when using my Mr. Cool mini split HVAC unit. I don't really use the heater much as out winters are very mild here in SoCal.Looking at your room nice job/colors.

I had Dave Isaccs Daimond table/Ft Collins installer do this also.
I had purchased the most used GC I in Denver for 30 yrs, and it too needed under rail wood replacement, too much use, too many staple holes in the pocket area.
I did one thing different than your table.
I corn blasted the aprons and framework, light sanding then I stained, clear coated the aprons, and all under wood.
I always liked the butcher block look of underwood of those early tables.
Plus the GC I's had no leg levelers and the slates are thicker to get the play surface 31''.
Nice job, reminds me of growing up in the Chicago burb area in the 60's.
All we ever saw in every newer pool room/COLLERG were these GCI's.
Blue, Orange and there was one other color/past
Its more brittle than slate. Slate can flex slightly. B'stone is real stiff. Gotta be REAL careful moving it.Yep, the table mechanic yrs ago in a room I built with 7 GC's. The table mechanic told me this stone doesn't crack like slates into shelves of pieces. It can often be repaired.
