Pool/Billiards/Medalist table

The Medilist pool table was built between 1920 and 1928.

The ball returns are made of paper fiber tubes, commly know as mailing tubes or sono tube. There are no plywoods used in this table. I am installing one now and the powner paid around $20,000 for it absoluty gorgious table. Hand cut martquetry thoughout the table. These tables were specially made for the customer. The table I am working on is 5 x 10, very rare with ball return. I am installing a English Green cloth made by Simonis for POOL TABLES.

All aspects of the game, strategy, runs, etc. Main focus is 8ball, 9ball, and straight pool. Pattern Play, 2-way shots, kicks, banks, throws, trick shots, shot selection, caroms, league play, safety play, and more. Don't ask me about cue's, manufacturers, how much a table is worth, etc. I just don't know.
