Woods & Veneers: We carefully source unfinished, rough cut woods and exotic veneers from suppliers worldwide. Each table is flitch and book-matched accordingly. Every table has its own unique pattern and different patterns can be chosen upon request.
Carving & Inlay: Custom hand carved panels, inlays and rail sites are designed, manufactured, and produced in our Wood-Ridge, NJ facility. Clients may choose from different patterns and styles on display within the facility.
Hand Rubbed Finish: Each table has a finish of its own. Tables are sanded, stained, and sprayed all by hand. This process is repeated until a flawless finish is achieved. Finishes come in Matte, High-Gloss, Semi-Gloss, Flat and can be matched to a specific dye upon request.
Hand Sewn Leather Pockets: Our pockets are hand sewn, tooled and custom dyed in house. Highly skilled and talented craftsman sew, dye and make each pocket individually. We produce and reproduce all different style pockets. Pockets come in an assortment of shields, fringes, and colors.
Slate: All tables come with premium, diamond honed 1-inch-thick slate or 1 ½ upon request. All slates are checked for total flatness and must meet Billiards Congress of America specifications. Slates are then adhered with 7/8-inch poplar framing. Lastly, our slates are planed for flatness and longevity.
Rubber Cushion: Cushions come in a variety of profiles and hardness. Our repair and restoration experts can repair or replace any part. Different types of rubber are available upon request.
Rail Construction: Many of our tables are still made with precision T-Rail Construction, engineered years ago by the legendary table makers of the world. Rails are made using solid hard woods and veneers.
The Antique Restoration Process:

Blatt Billiards has a vast collection of antique and one of kind vintage pool tables, collected over our nearly 100-year history. Many of the tables are fully restored, as well as unrestored available for restoration. All tables are restored to be within Billiards Congress of America specifications and playability requirements. 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 an inlay, damaged leg, or a ripped piece of veneer. Doing this requires the most experience and skill because the repair must be seamless and unnoticed. Our proprietary blend of dyes and time consuming finishing process is one reason the finish will yield the brilliance and depth of color that is simply unavailable anywhere else. It is this continuation and practice of old-world craftsmanship which earns Blatt Billiard the reputation for being the finest name in billiards.
