We started this project with an existing pool table and reused as many parts as possible in order to save money. We were lucky to have a friend with an old table he wanted to get rid of, but you could probably find one cheap or even free online, from someone who just wants it taken out of their house. If you don’t have an old pool table on hand, with a little extra work you can complete this project from scratch. First you need to determine the size of your table. Ours was an 8’ foot table, 49” wide, with a playing surface of 88” x 41”. We then reduced the table to its bare skeleton, a micro laminate grid which provides the structure and support for the rest of the table. If you are working scratch, you should start by constructing a support grid like ours shown below from micro laminate ply.

In order to make this pool table double as a dining room table, we cut two pieces of 3/4” oak stock to make a two-piece removable top. Next, we attached solid oak strips around the edges to cover the exposed plywood grain. We did this using wooden pegs. The entire top should overhang the completed table by 1.5” on each side. We used solid oak stock to make the skirt that prevents the top from moving or sliding off. We attached this from the underside using screws and glue.

There are pieces that make up the rail system on a pool table: one for each end and two for each side. Use a table saw to rip 1.75” x 5.5” x 55” and 1.75” x 5.5” x 48.75” pieces of oak stock. Now, use the table saw to cut an 1/8” groove down the length of the rails one inch from what will be the interior edge. Once those pieces are cut, set the table saw blade on a 21 degree angle and cut one side of each rail section. Use a round over bit and router on the outer top edges of each rail. Use the belt and orbital sander to smooth out the edges.

Once the bumper has cured, it’s time to wrap felt around the rails. Using the ridge you cut in the top of each rail and the plastic strips saved from the old table, insert the felt in the groove and using a block and a small hammer push the plastic strip into the groove, locking the felt into place. Once the felt is locked in place, fold it over the bottom of the rail and using the stapler and compressor attach the felt to the bottom of each rail.

Once that is done it’s time to adhere the rails. There were holes already in our slate where the rails attach, but if not, carefully drill pilot holes using a masonry bit and your drill driver. Attach the rails to the table top from underneath so no screws are revealed.
