I love this table. Big thanks to Jack Zimmerman ( @JZMechanix ) for the rails and refinishing.

The aluminum was polished out to a "true #8 mirror finish" by a shop specializing in show cars.

Perfection in a 4.5x9 footprint

I added a poll also, curious what cloth color people lean toward on older tables. Assuming superior lighting

Table turned out great! Should be good for another Century :)(y)
I can't take any credit for the refinish. That was done by a friend of mine, James Krieger.
Excellent work by him as usual. Perfect job on the rails as well as adding new Cherry veneer on the bases.

Here's a few pics of the rail work I did do...
New subrails, Diamond rail inserts and Artemis cushions.

...soooo,
one needs a reasonable sense of imagination to see this table?
I entered the super secret password and everything...
all I see are parts.

a cloth color? a good mix of blue & green should du.

The parts are nice - - perfect looking.. but ahhh,
maybe the torque washers and nylon lock nuts underneath not in play yet?

That's because it is currently in pieces, but if I stand it up soon I will make sure to send you a photo.

The table was assembled previously and I updated all of the hardware with modern choices while assembling other Gold Crowns and Centennials

I had this restoration commissioned for a private club, but the club sold. So I have this table now, and my house is not realistic for it today while my kids are so small. If we move or I find another home to put it into, I will get you the photoshoot and the secret password.

Perfecto! I could just sit and look at a Centennial table all day and never hit a ball on it. Okay, maybe just one! :rolleyes:

Blue. It goes with most chalk. Why a lot of cloth was green, and most chalk was blue is one of the most mind-bending dichotomies of pool ever.

But, it is an obscure sport.

How many Centennials did you have restored, that's more aluminum than fits on 1 table obviously? Did you ever set your table up?
