What to expect for wear and tear on your pool table


Wear and tear on your pool table is similar to the wear and tear that happens to your car, home, clothes and other furniture.   How long your pool or game table lasts, is directly linked to the kind of use it gets. If you take care of and maintain your table, you could conceivably have it for many decades. As part of our standard service quote questions, we ask “is your table more than 60 years old?”  We do this…

What to expect for wear and tear on your billiard cloth


How long your cloth lasts depends on two things: what quality was installed and what type of play it endures.  If you purchased your table from or had it serviced by a well established billiard dealer with a true brick and mortar store- you probably were sold high quality, commercial grade billiard felt.  If you purchased it from a warehouse or online, it’s difficult to know what quality you have received.

What to look for in a shuffleboard table!


While there are many different sizes and styles of shuffleboard tables, the most important part of the table is not the size or frame, but the playfield. When choosing your shuffleboard table, you want to look for playfields with kiln dried vertical solid maple boards that have been joined with tongue and groove joints, have a poured polymer surface and climatic adjusters.  This will not only insure the table’s ability to withstand public and commercial use, but also has the…

Hustler kitten


She’ll play you for some catnip

Our newest employee


This little 4 – 5 week old baby kitten showed up at our warehouse door yesterday. Thank you to everyone who suggested names for our new baby kitty; y’all had some really great ideas! We believe we have settled on Pocket as long as it ends up fitting her personality. Here are two of the most recent pictures.

Go Tigers!


Thank you to the Bell family of Katy for allowing us to be part of your Katy Tiger pride!
