Storing Pool Table in Storage that is not Climate Controlled


Storing Pool Table in Storage that is not Climate Controlled

I am new here and new to pool tables, at least to owning one.

I had just purchased a used 8' slate Kasson pool table.

I am keeping it in my garage since I do not yet have anywhere to put it. I hope to be moving in the next year or so but until then the table is gonna have to stay in the garage or can be taken apart and put in storage, neither is insulated or climate controlled. I live in Ohio and the temperature can be extreme in winter and summer.

My concern with storage is that the pieces would have to lean against a wall and I'm not sure if the parts will warp. Also, in the garage, I will at least get to play it. Not sure what I should do. Should I keep it in the garage put together or take it apart and put it in storage? Is there a way it "winterize" a pool table?

Any suggestions and information would be appreciated.

    Pool Table in Garage - Brunswick Medalist? There was a discussion about your request before. If you go back to where you filed your message and click on page 2 you will find it in the third post. It should ans your question.

    It was me that asked the question about the Brunswick Medalist. You'll get conflicting opinions, but I ended up putting a table in my garage (in the Chicago area). I asked a very experienced table mechanic who has worked on the pro tour and set up tables in just about any setting you can imagine. He said that the only issue might be that the slate might sweat if you warm the room up too fast with a heater.

    If the wood is dry (which should be a safe assumption), it should not warp. The wood may expand/contract very slightly with humidity, but it should be uniform and not impact the table or play significantly. My opinion, for what it's worth....I did ask the opinion of a family member who dries wood for a living. If you want to wait six months, I'll let you know how my table holds up.

    So it's been almost 10 years. How did your Brunswick survive storage? How did you store it, how long, etc?

    I will be storing my Brunswick pool table for hopefully no longer than 3 months, but it’s during the Alabama summer!
