1. What materials is it made of?

Pool Table Sales: Ask what type of materials are used in the table

You should find out what type of materials the pool table you are considering buying is made from.


Pool table beds:



All professional pool tables are made with slate beds. A slate bed will ensure that your balls will roll true. Slate will not deteriorate over time. If the cloth that is covering the slate begins to wear out, then you can have it replaced.


Some cheaper pool tables will have a wood (fibreboard and plywood) or sometimes even a plastic bed. These types of material will not last as long as a slate bed and more importantly you will not have a perfectly level surface on which to play. Wood beds may be less expensive to purchase and easier to move, however, if you are in a humid environment, they can swell or warp.


Cabinet and legs:



A pool table that has a solid hardwood cabinet and legs will last much longer and will be more durable than those made from other materials such as plywood, soft woods, or plastic. Some tables, like those made by Legacy Billiards, are constructed from white mahoganyThis is a species of Havea wood. 


Not only is it known for being one of the highest quality woods for making furniture, but it is also harvested and grown in a sustainable way. It doesn’t harm the rainforests and it is environmentally friendly. Legacy Billiard tables are available in Canada at Associated Billiards.

2. How was the table constructed?

Another consideration when it comes to pool table sales, is to find out how the table is constructed. Tables like those made by Legacy Billiards have a patented solid hardwood Perfect Corner construction.


This means they have fewer bolts and screws. As a result, these types of tables are easier to assemble and the solid corners will provide you with a more durable construction that will last longer.


They also use high-torque, t-nut fasteners which help to make your table even stronger.


Investing a bit more in a pool table that is well made will mean that you will not only enjoy a better playing experience, but your table will stand the test of time.

3. What is the right size of pool table?

Pool Table Sales: There are 3 main sizes of pool tables

Most pool tables come in 3 sizes: 7 foot, 8 foot, and 9 foot.


7 Foot Tables:



Seven foot tables, also known as bar size, are becoming more and more popular because they take up less space. If you have a smaller room that can’t accommodate a larger sized table or if you want to use your room for more than just playing pool, then a seven foot table is a great option.


Seven foot tables are geometrically the same shape as an 8 or 9 foot table. This means that the width of the table’s playfield is exactly half the size of its length. As a result your angles and shots will be the same. The only adjustment will be in the firmness of stroke and the degree of error. 


8 Foot Tables:


Eight foot tables are also referred to as standard size. They are the most popular size of pool table sold for home use.


9 Foot Tables:

This is a full-size table that is used in professional tournaments. It is the size that the game of billiards was invented on.

4. What design is the best?

There are many different design options when it comes to pool table sales so you can get the perfect table to suit the style of your room.


If you are looking for pool table sales that are more traditional, then the Blazer by Legacy Billiards is a wonderful example.


It has a classic pool table design featuring highly detailed ball and claw legs paired with black pockets.


It’s an incredibly affordable-priced table that will look amazing in any room.


Both beginners and seasoned professionals will appreciate its time-honoured style and it comes in your choice of high-quality finishes including Black Onyx or Nutmeg.


If you prefer a more contemporary style, then take a look at the Ella II. It is designed with curved post legs and an arched cabinet and side blinds.


The Ella II is made from solid hardwood and has a smooth, polished finish that comes in a variety of fine furniture-quality finishes including:

*Black Onyx
*Black Cherry


This beautiful table is available in 7′, 8′, or 9′ options to fit any space that you need.


If you want a more rustic look for your pool table, then the Cumberland is a great option. The Cumberland has a gorgeous rustic finish and a unique X leg design that makes it perfect to double as a dining room table.


Simply purchase one of our beautiful dining tops and custom height seating and you have an amazing table that you can use for hours of gaming fun and where 8 or more people can dine.


A table that does double duty will not only give you the best value for your money but it will also help you make the most of your indoor space.


The Cimarron has a more modern, almost industrial feel to it. It would look wonderful in any modern space, especially a loft, chalet, or finished basement.


It is made with metal components with true finger jointed cabinetry and heavily distressed solid raised grain ash wood.


It has a lovely grey wash finished that is called “Smoke” and a charming grey patina. If you prefer, you can also get it in a “Whiskey Barrel” finish that is a rich brown hue.

5. Is the manufacturer environmentally conscious?

Pool Table Sales: Ask about their environmental strategies

Being environmentally conscious is also a big consideration in pool table sales in this day and age. Check to see if the manufacturer of the table you are considering is committed to quality and sustainability.


For example, Legacy Billiards, available at Associated Billiards has a comprehensive green initiative that includes healthy practices such as:



*They have state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities that are equipped to release NO harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

*All wood scraps and sawdust collected from their factory are recycled and reused to heat and power the facility itself.

*All oils and chemicals used in their finish stains are collected and reused to ensure that there is no waste generated in the finishing process.

*They package their products efficiently in order to have the smalles shipping carton in the industry that is made entirely of recycled material.



All of these practices are helping Legacy Billiards to reduce their carbon footprint.
