... bought this pool table from Blatt Billiards (NYC) maybe 40+ years ago .... I checked with Blatt but they don't have their records from that long ago.
Here are pictures from the bottom … and it’s a 9ft table."That long ago, lol."
Except maybe the rails, i would not have guess the table was that old.
No doubt someone with more knowlege will appear soon.
What size is it?
Can you post s shot of the underside showing the structure and the slates?
Yeah it looks completely hand carved from the bottom. I’ll reach out to one of the names suggested to see if they have any other ideas.That's older than the applied carvings, non-veneered/non grain matched legs, & overall style of finish make it appear on the surface.
Maybe it was "restored" at some point, but i don't know enough to guess the maker.
yes with todays's equipment it is possible to 3D scan wood things or write a program, with that and something like a 5 axis Maka router it is possible ot crank out carvings all day long. I've looked after the maintenance of such machines. the things they can do are incredible. I have an ornate armchair that is heavily "carved" and appears from the 70's era. might be 80's ? I think it was an early example of such technology.
