About Slate Pool Table
Playing pool with your friends at the local pool hall, bowling alley, or bar is great fun, but can end up being an expensive hobby in time. If you have the space, such as in a family room or game room, consider purchasing a slate pool table of your own. These heavy pool or billiard tables are stylish looking; often come in rich-looking woods such as cherry, maple, or oak; and feature different color felt tops. Regulation slate tables are usually 8 feet long and 4 1/2 feet wide, although some run 7 feet or less. Used pool tables often feature worn felt surfaces, but buying replacement pool table felts extends the life of any table - not just a slate one. Although green is a typical felt color, replacement felts mimic the colors of the rainbow and more. A common accessory to consider buying when purchasing pool tables are pool table lights, which hang directly above the table. These lights feature billiard-related designs, sports team's logos, or company branding, such as beer manufacturers. Find the right slate pool table to meet your needs by searching the vast inventory available on eBay. Then, you can begin practicing your shots and taking your friends to school the next time you gather to play.
