What makes a pool table high quality?
The image above is an example of the internal components of a corner of a cabinet inside a quality table from Legacy Billiards. Here are the characteristics of this particular table that make its quality stand out among some other tables:
- The internal components are all made of one-inch-thick solid hardwood. There is no laminate, veneer, or plywood. Using solid hardwood components keeps the table solid and prevents the parts from wiggling loose, which can be a real problem in regions like the Southeast that have high humidity and relatively noticeable weather changes.
- Legacy builds what they call a “perfect corner,” an innovative corner that uses an all-wood gusset system with no metal bracketry. This means that with a Legacy table, the corner, which carries a lot of the weight and tension of the table, is made of wood components touching wood components. This creates a tighter connection than tables that use metal on wood, which will eventually loosen up and result in an unsteady table that can never be completely level.
- Legacy does use metal screws and bolts, however; this means that the table can be disassembled and reassembled with relative ease, unlike lower-quality tables that use wooden screws. Wooden screws lose their integrity every time they are moved and are also weaker and more likely to wiggle loose than metal screws.
