Basement Pool Room with a 1912 Brunswick Victor Pool Table


Basement Pool Room with a 1912 Brunswick Victor Pool Table

Here's our basement pool room.

The billiard table is a 4x8 Brunswick Victor from 1912-15. I bought it in 1993 for $300 - it was in pieces, missing pockets, missing diamonds in the rails, rotted cushions. I spent the winter of 1993-1994 restoring it, and now moved it to my new home. It was due for recovering anyway, so she got new cloth out of the deal.

I had forgotten how heavy 1" slate is! The friends who originally helped me move it had not forgotten. This time I had to get my teenage son and his friends for labor. The jukebox is a 1950 AMI Model C that my dad won in a pool game when I was 8 years old.

The room is small but workable. The pool table has 4 feet on each side, and plenty of room on the ends. There's a couple of places where a "shorty" cue is necessary, but all in all it works well. The kids spend a lot of time on the table, which is why I went with commercial grade Teflon-coated cloth, and so do I.
