Very well done. I hope you enjoy many hours on it while some of us are stuck mid-restoration!

Almost makes me want to tear my table down completely and refinish it...almost.

Mines a ten-footer, as the car show guys say. It looks good from about that distance.

Very nice. I grew up on Crown 1 I completed a Crown 3 project last year . Since then my billiard room flooded twice. No damage to table thank God. So had to install Drain Tile system so won't happen again. Once I get that completed I will post some photos. Thanks for shearing yours. LOve it.

My sincere compliments
truth be told this is my favorite pool table and light that i have ever seen

Of course those miniature pockets would not work for me

Ifsomeone would bring a table light like that in a 9 or oversized 8 foot in perfect shape like this one seems to be

I would either buy or trade my Centennial and mark gregory LE light

not even of course but reasonable

no kidding i love this set up you have here
CONSIDER THIS AS AN OFFER TO TRADE

or BUY ONE LIKE THIS EITHER OVERSIZED 8 OR 9 FOOFER with BLUE LIGHT

my hat is officially tipped to you on this table

My garage flooded a few months back as well... I am just finishing up a remodel ... good luck with yours!

Thanks, Dean! I think I'll hold onto this setup for a while.

After 1yr + with the table, would you change the pocket sizes? I’ve been thinking of getting 4.25 corners and 5 inch sides, but i might go for the size you have on the sides.

I would not change a thing; it plays beautifully. Don't get me wrong, it plays tight (but fair) and demands your attention which is what I like about it, especially in practice. I tend to get a little lackadaisical when practicing but this table forces me to focus on every shot. When I play on a 4.25" pocket table the pockets look big and when I play on a 4.5" table they look like buckets.

I think ima go somewhere in the middle with my corners, 4.375 w/ 4.875 on the sides, though admittedly I’m scared of the side pocket size. How deep did you place the shelves? And what angle did you place the mouths of your pockets? Do you have a topside view of the pockets? I’m debating between going with a either a truly worked on GC5 or Diamond

141 degree corners and 103 degree sides with 15 degree down angle.
