  • The Exclusive Quality That Makes A Blatt Billiards Table

    50,000 Square Feet • Open to the Public • Open to Designers • Showroom / Workshop

    (New Jersey Location)

    Any new Blatt Billiards table can be created in any wood that the client chooses.

    Certain styles have a history, a tradition, if you will, that sends a client in a certain direction to choose a wood that will maintain the historical relevance of that particular style. We source our woods and exotic veneers from the finest supplier of raw woods. Our finishes and dyes are proprietary to us - and are unavailable to anyone else. We have spent years perfecting our custom mixes - and the finest designers in the world recognize our secret blends of lacquers and secret blends of varnishes to be the finest available. Blatt Billiards buys unfinished, completely raw woods and veneers. We use our own aniline dye formulas to create the depth of color in our inlays as well as large sheet veneers and our own unique balance of gloss and dull to produce the perfect finish that matches the type of wood, style of table that the customer requests.

    This delicate balance is only achieved by Blatt Billiards.

    -- and in the high-end design community, the Blatt finish is legendary. To illustrate a point: raw ebony is not as black as it appears before the proper dyes/and or lacquers are added in the finishing stage of manufacture.

    When we make a table from scratch, we use handmade molds developed over our nearly 100 year history as an exact guide to re-create specific leg styles. We have, on file, accurate measurements for specific parts. We do have company-created blueprints for each table. Some drawn by hand - years ago; more recent designs created on computers.

    When we refurbish an antique for a client, we will remove damaged parts and faithfully re-create that part and replace it. Sometimes we may need to replace a damaged leg. Sometimes we may need to replace a ripped piece of veneer. Doing this requires the most experience and skill because the repair must be seamless: unnoticed. Some tables will require that the old lacquer or varnish be completely removed by hand sanding, and then, depending on the particular table design either re-stained and then refinished, or, if there is no need to re-stain the table, then, refinished. The final finishes require a minimum of 9 steps which include hand sanding, application of lacquer or varnish, then repeat. Over, and over again. This time consuming process is one reason why the finish will yield the brilliance and depth of color that is simply unavailable anywhere else. Underlying this stage, is, of course, the proprietary blends of dyes that also make Blatt tables the finest available.

    We have a combined 3,000 antique tables and contemporary tables in our inventory located in our new upgraded factory in Wood Ridge, NJ.

    Tables have been acquired since the 1920's, and are bought from a variety of sources, including private homes and estates; and, years ago, entire pool halls. Most of the tables have been purchased in the United States. We provide evaluations for both Sothebys and Christies....and other auction houses. Blatt Billiard’s is considered to be the foremost expert on all pool tables and is directly involved in every aspect of buying tables for inventory and providing evaluations for the auction houses.

    We are called upon to provide answers for other industry members as well. All work is done by artisans employed by, and trained at Blatt Billiards.

    Our tables are sold and installed worldwide including most of Europe, the Middle East, South America and all across The United States.
