    Carom, Pocket or Combination

    One of our new styles of billiard tables on which we have secured design patent because of originality and simplicity. It is a good medium grade of table that will certainly be very popular.

    Stock Sizes: 4 ½ x 9, 5 x 10

    Wood and Finish: Furnished in either Quarter-sawed oak or handsomely finished mahogany. The oak is finished in our #6 medium or golden color and the mahogany in our regular No. 2 stock color, rubbed and polished finish, which means that after being given the ordinary cabinet finish it is hand-rubbed to a dull polish. This can be kept clean more readily than any other finish.

    The massive body of this table is what is known in our factory as the Jumbo frame work, which means that it has unusual strength and great durability. Top molding 5 in. x 3 3/8 in., subframe 2 ¾ in. at top, 1 ½ in. at bottom x 10 ¼ in.; total frame 14 in. The frame work of this body is built up in what is technically known as compound construction-that is, various kinds of woods tongued and grooved together and double cross veneered on the outside and inside, the outer veneer being handsomely figured in oak or mahogany. This table is made in sections and can be taken apart for shipment. Reinforcing blocks at side intersections 5 in. wide x 2 in. thick x 11½ in., secured to end section by ½ in. iron frame bolt reinforced by hardwood dowels. Legs 10½ in. square at base, tapering to 9½ in. at capital. Double cross stretchers 41 inches x 1 ¼ in. thick x 6½ in., braced into reinforcing block. Legs are built up of compound construction, tongued and grooved, doweled and reinforced by corner blocks, double cross veneered, inside and out, and rigidly built into end frame work of body. Leg cap 6 in. square x 3 1/8 in. The wood construction is all of the very best quality, cabinet made and put together in a most thorough manner. All joints tongued and grooved, strongly doweled and glued firmly together. All mitres absolutely accurate. All corners and edges made perfectly smooth and true.

    Cushion Rails: Compound construction 5 x 1 ¾ inches thick, with facing 4 1/8 in x 2 ¼ inches, built up of various kinds of hardwoods of different grain to give strength and prevent its being affected by climatic changes. Invisible cushion bolts covered by what is known as Blind Cushion Rails, made in 5-ply thicknesses of material placed in an alternate run of grain with fancy figured veneer on the exterior. Cap rails 7/8" thick x 2 7/8". Rosewood top ¼" thick. Solid rosewood corners. Pearl sights. Inlaid metal fancy name plate, 8 rail bolts on each side and 4 on each end of 4 ½ x 9 table, and 10 rail bolts on each side and 5 on each end of 5 x 10 table.
