HANDBUILT TRADITIONAL BILLIARD/SNOOKER TABLES

The building of Traditional Billiard Tables, including the blending of finest materials with outstanding craftsmanship, demands attention to detail and constant quality development.

Scientific construction methods and Barton McGill’s ability to match climatic issues, mean these final structures will never bend, crack, shrink or twist with age. Traditional materials are carefully balanced and matched.

All slate beds are imported from Italy and each table is hand floated in its frame, ensuring total flatness and finished to stand the test of straight edge and level.

Cushions are of West African Mahogany or selected hardwoods as below. Absolute rigidity and straightness are maintained by 6.5″ fixing bolts. The combination of natural rubber on solid timber results in perfect ball speed and truth of rebound.

The rubbering of cushions is one of the most skilled jobs undertaken by our craftsmen. Using 100% pure rubber, it is all done by hand, with great care and precision to our registered SLC (Standard Low Cushion) Design. The entrance to each pocket is uniformly undercut to open out past the fall of the slate, and conforming to the standard template of the World Governing Body.

Frames are made from solid West African Mahogany and the slate bearers are South American Cedar. The whole structure is Dry Dowelled and held together by large 12″ steel bolts. Supporting the frame and slates are hand turned solid mahogany legs, each fitted with adjustable toes for ease of levelling.

Cloth is imported from West England’s famous Strachan, manufacturers of the finest pure Merino-based cloths. World Championships for over 100 years have been played on these immaculate playing surfaces. Strachan cloth is strong and tightly stretched over the slate bed, ensuring an imperfection-free and true ball path across the entire table.

With 120 Years of Billiard Table Manufacturing experience, Barton McGill stands by each table with a lifetime guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied in every way, let us know!
