I have a couple of questions. I am thinking of buying an olhausen table from my local dealer. Its an 8ft table and i was wondering if it was good quality. I plan to put it on my lower floor but on carpet and was wondering if that will make the table unlevel... also if i do decide to buy it the guy said i have the choice of putting 1" slate instead of 7/8" slate, and also simonis cloth instead of the one it comes with for a small fee... is there much of a playing difference with simonis and 1" slate.. thx
This is the table i plan to buy

As for teh carpeting, I thought that would make a difference too, but This guy put his home pool table in a room with carpeting, and I asked him about it being level, and he said it didn't seem to be a problem.
If it was me though, and I had the resources, I'd cut a square out of the carpet, and lay ceramic tiles. It'll help with stability and leveling of the table, and give the room a more authentic pool room look.
As for the slate and cloth issue, I'd upgrade both if the incremental cost is reasonable. I mean look at it this way; You are investing a few thousand in this piece of furniture that you'll likely have for years, why not get the best add-ons? Also, keep in mind that cloth is not at all fun to replace, and the expense to have someone do it later is likely a whole lot more that the cost to do the simonis cloth upgrade right from the start.
As for the slate, go with the thicker option. If you DO decide to keep the carpet, it'll provide the extra weight to keep it more stable atop the carpeting. Also, I've never heard anyone say "gee, less thick slate is better" [8D]
