Geez I’m sorry I bumped this thread looking for info. We all respect your guys’ prowess as table mechanics, but can you two idiots please get a room somewhere and spare us all the BS?
 
In the OP, I assume that is the matte black finish, correct? The finish on the top rails looks so perfect that it almost looks like laminate. Is it laminate or finished wood?

I have the same table. Brunswick calls the matt black rail finish “high pressure laminate”, which I think (but am not sure ) is basically like Formica, ie a composite of layered paper & melamine resin. Mine doesn’t see harsh use outside of some teen agers banging balls occasionally, but its holding up perfectly, just wipe down with damp microfiber cloth once a month or so… literally zero scratches/dents so far.

Thanks. I assumed it was finished wood but see now in the brochure that it says high pressure laminate.

Since you have the table, do you mind answering a couple of questions?

Is the entire table the same laminate - Rails, Apron, Legs?
is the apron solid wood, plywood or MDF?

I assume the legs are mostly MDF.

Only the matt black rail top playing surfaces are the high pressure laminate stuff.

Aprons are solid wood.

Legs main parts are also solid wood, but have some plywood interior walls. No MDF anywhere that I could see, but the outer surface layer might be some sort of MDF laminate, not sure. Going by memory here, haven’t looked at the legs closely since install day 2 yrs ago and I’m away from my house for the weekend. When I get home tomm if I remember I’ll crawl under the table and take a fresh closer look for you.

Oh no. No crawling! I appreciate it. So the aprons are stained/poly or lacquered wood as far as you know?

Aprons are stained & lightly lacquered I think, but not sure. Happy to crawl underneath & snap some pics for you next 1-2 days. Good questions!
