Brunswick Gold Crown Pool Table International

Brunswick Gold Crown Pool Table International

Brunswick Gold Crown Install by Everything Billiards Charlotte

The Brunswick Gold Crown has been an icon in the world of Billiards for decades.  This Gold Crown IV found its final home in Costa Rica, with an expat whose family will love it for generations to come.

Brunswick White Gold Crown 4-2

Built like a literal tank utilizing 3.5″ mahogany base frame, this is the sturdiest table on the market.  Brunswick did a special edition White Gold Crown in 2017, and this is one of the few in the world.  All Gold Crowns have heavy duty metal corners, adjustable feet and slate bed, and super durable laminate rail construction edged with metal plates.  This table will stand up to all sorts of use and abuse, and it is the choice of professional billiards players the world over.

Brunswick White Gold Crown 4 ping pong

The Brunswick Gold Crown V is the current model, and the Gold Crown VI will make its debut in 2018!

We thought you would like to check it out.  Please contact Everything Billiards Charlotte or Greensboro for information on purchasing your own Pool Table today!

Olhausen Gameroom of the Month Winner – Everything Billiards

Olhausen Gameroom of the Month Winner – Everything Billiards

Everything Billiards wins Olhausen Gameroom of the Month!

Olhausen West End Pool Table and Matching West End Shuffleboard Table

Everything Billiards is the Exclusive Olhausen Billiards Dealer for Charlotte and Greensboro, NC.  And we are a Top 10 National Olhausen Dealer.  There is a reason for this – because we help you create the awesomest, raddest, baddest home game rooms on the planet. And this was recently recognized by Olhausen in their Gameroom of the Month.

Check out this Matching West End billiard table and Shuffleboard table by Olhausen Billiards.  The West End is a new model for Olhausen, and has been a smashing success thus far in 2017.  With straight, simple lines, this pool table has a very modern and efficient look.  Smart, capable, just like the woman who designed the room, Lauren Tilley with Lauren Tilley Interiors. The Matte Smoke finish she selected is subtle, yet elegant.  This finish is turning into the hot finish of the year.  Medium gray with strategic rub-throughs created, I believe, with a paintbrush as the finish is drying, it has a depth that conventional finishes simply cannot achieve.  Of course, Olhausen also has 40+ other finishes to choose from, or you can do a custom finish match.  So options abound!

The West End Shuffleboard was also a well-planned addition to this game room.  Many times you can run one right along the pool table, like Lauren chose to do.  The way that Olhausen matches both style and finish is unique in the billiards industry.  Shuffleboard is rapidly gaining popularity in the US, as it is a game that anyone can play without needing previous experience.  Shuffleboard is a kid magnet, and is great for when you have friends and family over.  Whereas billiards is a very deep game with a lifetime of things to learn, shuffleboard is simple and easy.  Why not do both?

Big Green Egg Charlotte, NC – Boston Butt Cook “At Work”

Big Green Egg Charlotte, NC – Boston Butt Cook “At Work”

Big Green Egg Charlotte

Cooking a Boston Butt While At Work with the Flame Boss

So here I sit at 10:42 AM on a Saturday.  At work.  Again.  But there is something different and exciting about today – a certain Magic in the Air.  When I get home, I will have a perfectly cooked Boston Butt from my Big Green Egg!  With the Flame Boss, I can literally monitor and control the cook on my Big Green Egg – FROM WORK!

Big Green Egg Charlotte

I busted out the Flame Boss for its maiden voyage earlier this week.  I did a trial run on a chicken, and now I’m ready for a longer cook, and the Boston Butt is an easy way to start.  To be honest, installing and familiarizing myself with the Flame Boss was a lot easier than I thought.  It literally took me about 1 minute or less to hook up the fan plate to my XL Big Green Egg, and the fan just sets right into the square hole in the plate.  Close the bottom air flow gauge and you are good to go!  The spots where the cords plug into the unit are clearly labeled, too.  And one benefit of the Flame Boss over the Big Green Egg Brand Dual Probe Thermometer is that the pit temp “probe” on the Flame Boss is a clip.  Just clips right to the grate, where as with the Dual Probe, you can get confused as to which is which.

Big Green Egg Charlotte

It took me another 5-10 minutes to program in my wifi network and password into the Flame Boss Unit, and to create an account at MyFlameBoss.com.  Then I entered in the unique code for my Flame Boss, and Voila! Setup complete.  Now I can monitor and control my cook on my Big Green Egg at home, while sitting here writing this blog from 10 miles away.  And the Flame Boss is doing all the work!

Big Green Egg Charlotte

It took me a little while to work up the nerve to spend $300+ on the Flame Boss, but I can already tell that it will be worth every single penny.  With a two year old and normal life and home duties, anything I can do to save some time helps.  Technology to the rescue again!  While the Big Green Egg is a more involved grilling experience than a gas grill, the food quality is WELL worth the time investment.  But with the Flame Boss as my cooking assistant, getting great tasting food off my Big Green Egg just got a lot easier!

Come buy your Flame Boss today (and your Egg if you don’t already have one) at Everything Billiards Charlotte!

Hot Spring Spa Jets


BETTER, MORE SOOTHING MASSAGE

Hot_Spring-Limelight-Gleam-Details-Jets.jpg

Many hot tub manufacturers will tell you they’ve fit hundreds of jets into their spas.  But more doesn’t necessarily equate to better!  Having all of those jets isn’t going to truly alleviate your aches and pains or equate to a more therapeutic, relaxing experience if they aren’t thoughtfully placed or can’t be adjusted.  Hot Spring has spent dozens of years researching how both the placement and types of jets combine to provide you with the massage that you want

When you get out of your spa, you aren’t going to feel the same as you did when you got in!  With many spas featuring up to seven different types of jets, in addition to the exclusive Moto-Massage DX jet, you’re sure to get the hydrotherapy that you need.  Just make sure you get there first to claim your favorite seat!

Whether you enjoy a soothing stream of gentle water to relax and unwind at the end of a long day sitting at your desk, or you need more targeted massage to help relieve arthritis, or you need to recover from that triathlon, each Hot Spring Spa can provide you with the variety of jets best suited to your particular situation.  Check out the different types of jets below and learn how each one can relieve tension!

Simple & Easy Water Care


From traditional water care to Hot Spring’s patented & innovative ACE Salt Water Sanitizing System, we have a solution for everyone!

Hot_Spring-Highlife-Grandee-Lifestyle-Family.jpg

Not only do you want your spa water to be sparkling clean and clear, but you want to make sure the water is sanitary and safe for your family and loved ones!  Every spa requires a water care system.  When you choose Everything Billiards and Hot Spring, you can select from three great options.  From our exclusive ACE Salt Water System to our complete line of FreshWater bottled products, we are certain to have the option that will work best for you and your lifestyle.

This high-end, luxury Maitland Smith pool table is at the upper echeloen for pool tables!!! This oversized 9 foot beauty is finished off in solid mahogany with a high gloss finish. The khaki Hainsworth felt is beautiful contrast that really makes this table pop.  The details in the legs of the lion head carvings are true works of art that make this table a one of a kind.The inset notched rails with inset pockets are truly unique to Maitland Smith. Details in the pockets included diamond cut outs with solid polished brass hardware. Unlike traditional pool table pockets these screw down on top of the rails which adds to the many dimensions of these tables. Only made in limited supply these tables are truly a sight to be hold and are breath taking in person.

Last week, we installed an Olhausen Monarch pool table in Charlotte, NC, with Brushed Aluminum finish.  This beautifully built billiards creation combines the classic pool hall look with the contrasts of black maple rails and brushed aluminum.  The option of using a brushed aluminum veneer on a pool table is a look designers and customers alike love!  Olhausen will put brushed aluminum on most of their Modern Series pool tables. 

Such as the Olhausen Madison pool table, also on the floor here at Everything Billiards Charlotte.  This one has Walnut Rails with Mother of Pearl and Ebony Sights.  A very sexy pool table!

Brunswick Brixton Pool Table

Brunswick Brixton Pool Table

A very Rustic, Unique, and Awesome Pool Table, from Everything Billiards

As the year comes to a close, I always review our best sellers, and the Brixton Pool Table from Brunswick Billiards is a top-10 best seller, and one of my personal favorite pool tables.  There is not another billiards table out there that is anywhere near a similar style.  Made out of solid oak with a distressed finish, this is one durable pool table.  The distressed finishes not only look great, but they also help hide any scuffs and scratches from the kids, while fitting right in with the reclaimed style that has been so hot in 2015.  The design of the Brixton pool table incorporates an “X” leg shape, sitting atop a substantial base.  It looks kind of like a picnic table, but a whole lot cooler.

The Brunswick Brixton pool table, like all other Brunswicks in the Authentic series, is made of solid wood and utilizes K-66 Brunswick Super Speed cushions.  Brunswick Super Speed cushions are the best in the industry.  Well, tied with Olhausen AccuFast cushions, to be honest.  But these cushions play superbly – well enough that the billiard pros request them in major tournaments.  You are guaranteed decades of enjoyment and performance out of the Super Speed cushions, unlike lesser brands.  And you get all the benefits of 170 years worth of Brunswick research, design and pool table expertise that you simply cannot find from any other manufacturer!

The Brunswick Brixton billiard table is available in two finishes, both with a somewhat nautical theme in the name.  Beachwood is a nutmeg-ish finish color, and Driftwood is a whitish, washed look – similar to actual driftwood you find on the beach.  Both are absolutely gorgeous!  Brunswick really nailed it with these finishes.  Here are a couple of photos of installs we did this year.

The first is a pool table that we put in the Homearama Charlotte 2015, on a joint venture with Traci Zeller, an amazing local interior designer.

This second install was done in North Charlotte for a private residence.

Rustic Pool Tables from Everything Billiards

Rustic Pool Tables from Everything Billiards

Rustic Pool Tables Sweep the Nation:

Olhausen Billiards Breckenridge, Cumberland, and Ponderosa.

2015 has seen many new pool table models in the billiards industry of North Carolina.  Everything Billiards Charlotte and Greensboro have found, through extensive research, that Rustic Pool Tables are gaining market share day by day.  While the traditional billiards tables we sell are still selling like hotcakes, the rustic finishes and clean, modern look is definitely gaining with designers and homeowners alike.  Potential pool table buyers, look out – you are about to see some great looking pool tables for sale here.

The Breckenridge, by Olhausen Billiards, was the hot pool table of the summer months in Charlotte, NC.  We sold more Breckenridge pool tables than any other individual pool table model in July and August, and are still going strong.  The Breckenridge has a very unique finish – really unlike anything else on the market.  It has wide rails accented with Buffalo Nickel sights, giving you plenty of room for your hands shooting rail shots.  Deep aprons give the Breckenridge pool table a significant presence in any room.  The integrated legs on this pool table give it a seamless, modern, simple look that designers love these days.  Trestles connect the end legs to each other, and another spans the length of the billiards table, connecting the whole system, and creating a very solid look and feel to this spectacular billiards table.

Everything Billiards Charlotte Olhaus

Every Olhausen pool table, the Breckenridge included, comes with 1″ slate that is honed flatter than much of the competition.  AccuFast cushions give you that professional rebound for your bank shots.  Lifetime warranty?  Absolutely.  There is a reason Olhausen is widely known as The Best in Billiards, and the Breckenridge is a fine example of why that is.  Find this pool table for sale at Everything Billiards in Charlotte and Greensboro.

If you are looking for a totally rustic pool table from Olhausen Billiards, look no further than the Cumberland or Ponderosa pool tables.  These beautiful billiards tables are made from pine and spruce, hand selected for their very unusual rustic qualities – knots, worm holes, etc.  If you have a mountain home, a lake home, or just a normal home,  love that natural look, and want your pool table to match that decorating theme, come on in and see our rustic pool tables for sale!

Father’s Day Big Green Egg Sale in Charlotte!

Father’s Day Big Green Egg Sale in Charlotte!

$150 off Big Green Egg Packages at Everything Billiards!

Everything Billiards loves Fathers.  In fact, we have several on our staff, and I will be celebrating my first Father’s Day as a father this year . . . that being the case, we would like to help all fathers and their families make Father’s Day 2015 one to remember!  In addition to our already low Big Green Egg prices, we will be giving customers up to $150 worth of Big Green Egg Accessories for FREE!   Come to Everything Billiards Charlotte from June 8-21, and choose a Conveggtor and a Looftlighter: FREE!  Choose a Nest/Stand for your Egg: FREE!  Choose 4-6 smaller gadgets valued up to $150: FREE!  I think you get the idea.

Become an “Egghead”

Everyone has heard about the Big Green Egg.  We all know someone who, whenever the topic of grilling comes up, literally raves about the Egg.  These individuals are known fondly as “Eggheads,” and I can tell you from experience that an Egghead is the best salesperson I could ever hope for.  Whenever there is an Egghead in the store, and a potential Big Green Egg customer is perusing our selection of ceramic grills, I just introduce the two parties and step away.  The sale takes care of itself from that point forward.  Actually, I am quickly becoming an Egghead myself!  Got a 9-pound Boston Butt on the Egg right now . . .

The Ultimate Cooking Experience

There’s a good reason why the Big Green Egg’s tagline is “The Ultimate Cooking Experience”: Because it is!  You can grill, smoke, and bake anything – yes, anything – on this cooking machine.  Try me – throw it out there, and I guarantee you can cook it on the Egg.  The BGE is made of a higher quality ceramic than any other kamado style grill, and is designed to be 100% insulated.  This design keeps your food more moist, locking in both the natural flavors and and giving your food more exposure to the charcoal and/or smoke flavor, depending on what you are cooking.  The Big Green Egg is so simple, easy to use, and dog-gone good tasting that we have more than a few customers who say they rarely use their stove anymore.  Top burners or oven.  They just love the Big Green Egg flavor so much that they cook everything on it.  I’m not kidding . . .

Ping-Pong Conversion Top for Pool Table

[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]The Ping-Pong Conversion Top is one of our best-selling add-ons for pool table buyers.  We generally stock both Brunswick and Olhausen models, so that the table tennis topper matches the billiard table brand.  Both brands use a very durable melamine material, and both include the net, paddles, and balls.  The ping-pong conversion top fits on pretty much any 7′ or 8′ pool table.  It is regulation size 9′ x 5′ – the same as the stand-alone ping-pong table.  $400 value!   [/ezcol_1half_end]

[ezcol_1half]

 

Worsted Wool Felt Upgrade

[/ezcol_1half]

 

[ezcol_1half_end]

We have 3 different options for Upgraded Felt: Simonis, Hainsworth, or Centennial.  All 3 are worsted wool – the worsting process removes excess fibers, giving the felt a smoother texture which makes the ball roll smoother and faster.  Worsted wool felt is also easier to keep clean, and 2 of the 3 options are essentially waterproof (not Simonis).  Since we’re treating Dad this Father’s Day, make sure to be prepared for kids’ spills!  $400 Value!  [/ezcol_1half_end]

Everything Billiards Charlotte Pool Table: Olhausen Wentworth

Olhausen is The Best in Billiards, for a reason.  Their pool tables are fully customizable.  From the pool table finish, to the sights (diamonds), to the style and shape of the legs, each pool table is unique and built to the customer’s own specifications.  You can even piece together different parts of different pool tables to get exactly what you want for your billiards room!

Olhausen Pool Table Wentworth 2

This customer chose the Traditional Mahogany finish on the Wentworth pool table cabinet, which is one of the fuller cabinet styles in the Olhausen Signature Series.  He liked the look of the Augusta legs, though, so we went with those, and the end result is stunning.  The square, tapered legs add an additional look of stability to this pool table, though I like the original legs that it comes with, too.  The light is from Toltec.  They are our most popular lighting vendor.  As a customer, you can find whatever combination you seek.  Choose your light bar and finish, choose your shade, and you’re done!  Their selection is expansive – sure to suit anyone’s needs.

Brunswick Brixton Pool Table – Featured Billiard Table

Brunswick Brixton Pool Table – Featured Billiard Table

Everything Billiards recently installed a Brunswick Brixton Pool Table in Charlotte, NC, and boy, is it beautiful!

Everything Billiards Charlotte Brunswick Brixton Pool Table

One of the most unique pool tables on the market today, for sure!  Brunswick Billiards introduced the Brixton in 2014, and designers and homeowners alike have taken notice.  The Brixton’s “X” shaped legs are different from any other design out there.  Brunswick continues to pair innovative design with the quality the world has come to expect from America’s oldest name in billiards.  They’ve been making pool tables for over 170 years, and it shows.  Always at the forefront of new designs, and only the best materials.  When you buy a Brunswick Billiards pool table from Everything Billiards & Spas, you are getting a lifetime (or generations, really) of attractive-looking fun for the family!

This particular install was for a design firm in the Charlotte area.  Everything Billiards and Spas does quite a bit of work with designers, many of whom like contemporary or modern pool tables.  I, personally, love to work with designers, as they are often very imaginative and do some really cool things in home gamerooms or common areas in apartment complexes or businesses.  Thanks, Kristina, for your business!  We hope to work with you again in the future!

Aramith Fusion Pool Table Install: a Designer’s Dream

The Aramith Fusion is undoubtedly the sleekest, most modern pool table on the market.  And Everything Billiards sells these pool tables in North and South Carolina.  This steel-framed pool table can support the weight of the billiard slate using a much thinner profile than wood, due to steel’s inherent strength advantage over wood.

Photo Nov 20, 4 42 15 PM

Pool Table and Dining Table – Convertible

But here’s the real kicker: The Aramith Fusion pool table easily and instantly converts to a dining table, too!  2 birds, one stone…  In practice, you can add a dining top to any pool table to create a dining surface.  However, the dining height is too high as a result of the pool table slate height needing to be between 29 1/4″ and 31″.  Add on a dining top to a conventional pool table, and you have a dining height of 34″ or so, which is 4″ higher than we are used to.  Aramith Fusion’s patented leg technology drops the table down to a standard dining height for dining, and raises up to standard billiards height for a game of pool.

[ezcol_1third]Everything-Billiards-Charlotte-Aramith-Fusion-Pool-Table-Install-4[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Everything-Billiards-Charlotte-Aramith-Fusion-Pool-Table-Install[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Everything-Billiards-Charlotte-Aramith-Fusion-Pool-Table-Install-2[/ezcol_1third_end]

This install, sold to a customer in the Charlotte, NC area, chose the brushed aluminum powder coat on the steel, Walnut rails, with Electric Blue Simonis felt.  Each pool table comes standard with the dining top and an Aramith accessory kit.  Only the best: Fusion, Aramith, Simonis.  Fusion offers a variety of finishes and wood colors to fit any decor.  A full range of matching seating options are available, as well.  Come get yours today!

Aramith Fusion Pool Table Story

Saluc, headquartered in Callenelle in Belgium, is the world leading manufacturer of high-quality billiard balls under the worldwide premium brand ARAMITH®.Saluc company is known all over the world for its creativity, flexibility and pool technical know-how, developing a unique quality: the Know How to Entertain.

A lot of people who like playing pool often like also modern and contemporary design furniture and decorations. For a long time, however, design addicts who like to play pool games never found the table they were looking for: a pool table with a contemporary sleek design offering nice wooden and lacquered finishings.

In 1997 our design team designed a revolutionary new table concept: a dining table and pool table all in one, featuring a modern sleek design, unlike the classic, heavy looking, wooden tables we usually find at pool table stores. They managed to design a dining/pool table the pool player’s wife could live with. The Fusiontable is the result of several months of trends watching, brain storming, technological developments and prototype testing in cooperation with traditional pool table manufacturers.

 

 

An entire team of Belgian designers and engineers at Saluc decided to make this dream a reality at a quite affordable price. Their vision was to design a single dining/pool table with perfect proportions introducing horizontality, accuracy, elegance and thinness. At the same time, they also introduced several technological innovations to solve some issues that remained: they eliminated the 5th foot under the centre of the table as well as the ball recuperator under the table, they dropped the classical 3 pieces natural stone, did away with the pending pockets and everything that was not ‘modern’ in order to obtain a contemporary and sleek design table. They developed the Easy Lift system to address the playing height/dining height difference issue, opted for clean lines and new materials such as metal, but also warm materials like veneered wood and natural stone, giving the table a stylish and luxurious but also very simple and sober-minded appearance.

When this revolutionary dining/pool table was first introduced into stores all over the world, many customers wanted to order additional furniture to complete the dining room – the Fusiontables collection was born. Chairs, stools, benches, lighting, sideboards are now part of the Fusiontables range to allow customers to add an entirely new dimension to their dining room.

New World Record Set for Pool Table Refelting, Moving: Everything Billiards

Everything Billiards set a new World Record for most pool tables moving and refelting in a day!* 12 Commercial pool tables in 10 hours at BreakZone Billiards.

Everything Billiards bar re-felt: Break Zone Billiards

We brought the whole install crew in on this bad boy.  I forget how many hands we had on deck, but there were lots of us.  We all put in a hard day’s work, and went through thousands of staples, I am sure.  However, that’s just the way we do things here at Everything Billiards.  We are super-efficient, and also highly effective.  When we say we are going to do something, we do it, we do it right, and we do it quickly – without even considering sacrificing quality along the way.  We moved and refelted all 12 9′ tables in one day, minimizing the down-time for the bar owners so that they did not lose much money due to tables unavailable for play.

[ezcol_1half]Everything Billiards Bar Refelt 1[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Everything Billiards Bar Refelt 2[/ezcol_1half_end]

That’s one of the reasons we get hired so much for pool table refelting, and travel all over the tri-state area (NC, SC, and VA) to refelt bars, set up bars, or satisfy homeowners.  It’s amazing how many yahoos out there claim to work on pool tables, but have little or no idea what they are doing.  We spend a significant amount of our time fixing mistakes done by other installers.  Some installers just either don’t know or don’t care to take the time to do things right.  At Everything Billiards, we have weeded out the chaff, and only have the highest quality installers on our payroll.  We took the time to train them, and make sure that we don’t hire anyone who will not pay attention to detail for the long-haul.  None of those “good starters” whose performance decreases as the years go by.

And should you EVER have a problem, Rob or I will come fix it ourselves!

Brunswick Mission, Charlotte, NC

Brunswick Mission pool table, Charlotte, NC = Gameroom of the Week!

Beautiful Gameroom in Charlotte, NC!

 

This family chose a spectacular table to jumpstart their lakefront gameroom.  A quality Authentic Brunswick, resting on a stained concrete floor, set in front of a stone fireplace, under a stained-glass billiard-table light, with a 52″ Plasma on the wall opposite the fireplace, over the matching pub table and chairs, and a poker table on order to go under the fan (to disperse cigar smoke, no doubt!) in the back of the photo.  All this entertainment overlooking scenic Lake Norman in the distance.  The sun setting over the water, a glass of your favorite beverage in hand, surrounded by the family and friends you love.  A huge hunk of meat slow-cooking on the grill outside, twice-baked potatoes and lightly-seasoned asparagus doused with Garlic & Herb olive oil  in the lower oven, and blueberry cobbler warming in the upper oven, just waiting for the homemade vanilla ice-cream on top to create the perfect dessert.  The perfect evening.

This is where you inhale deeply, and then exhale, feeling the dream.  Now you suddenly realize that it is the middle of Monday morning, you’re at work, and the picture that I have just painted for you is proooooooooooooobably not going to happen today.  Oh well, at least you have a good chance of making part of it happen!  And we, here at Everything Billiards are more than happy to help you realize the furniture-oriented part of the gameplan.  You’ll have to talk to your spouse and/or boss about realizing the other portions of the story.

Give us a call or check out Brunswick’s site for more info.

Level the Table? Why?!?

You’d be amazed at how often other installers neglect this essential function of an installation.  I know I am amazed that it happens enough for me to dedicate an entire post to it!  Two days ago, we went to relevel a table that a customer’s brother had sat on, causing the seams to separate, and found that not only were the seams separated, the entire table was grossly out of level.  And I do mean grossly!  There were no shims under the slate at all, and the playing surface was shaped like a boat (“U”), low in the middle by a lot.  Rest assured, when Everything Billiards levels a table, it is level to within .005″.  Ladies and gentlemen, that is VERY LEVEL!!!

I’ll back up and provide some background info. so that you can understand.  There are 3 pieces of slate, thus a “seam” where one meets the other.  These can separate if too much weight is placed on one piece or if the frame is twisted or moved improperly.  Of course, at Everything Billiards, we use a specially-formulated glue to prevent this – saving you money should you have an unruly brother. . .  Back to leveling 101: After leveling the frame with shims underneath the feet, you have to level the slate itself.  I would say that 1998 times out of 2000  (that’s .1%) it is necessary to add shims between the slate and frame to fine-tune the levelness of the slate.  Every once in a while you get really lucky and don’t need to shim under the slate.

However, in the aforementioned case, this dealer/installer simply screwed the slate down to the frame, put some shims under the feet to get the table level side to side, and “sort-of” level end to end, and called it a day.  This resulted in the table being at least 3/16″ out of level.  The type of level that we use at Everything Billiards is very sensitive, but this table was so out of level that the level could not really even register that it was close to level – it was totally out of the ballpark.  It frustrates me to no end to think that there are people on this earth who bother doing a job at all if they aren’t going to do it to the best of their ability.  I may be slightly anal-retentive when it comes to things that I do, but I am a firm believer in the perspective that my time is very valuable.  If I am going to choose to spend it doing something, by golly it will be done right!

Anyhow, I guess the lesson here is to shop with us and/or use Everything Billiards to service your pool table.  I’ll personally guarantee that the job is done right, you will be happy, or heads will roll, and then you’ll be happy.  The company that sold this man his table is, thankfully, no longer in business.  However, I can promise you that people like them still exist, because we see mis-installed tables all the time.  You won’t find any of these people here, though.  So, if you have chosen Everything Billiards, or do so in the future, you can sleep well at night, knowing that your pool table has been leveled to within .005″ , and will stay that way, unless you stand on it, sit on it, or move it.  Or, I guess we could have an earthquake or your house could settle, but then you probably have bigger problems than an unlevel pool table. . .

Be well!  Until next time!

More About Pool Table Cushions (Rubber)

Hello, Friends!

We’re back this week with a continuation of last week’s topic, which stemmed from an especially sun-bleached pool table, which is not actually all that uncommon. Before we dive into cushion health care (which in not quite as controversial as the Health Care Debate in politics), I’d like to add a bit to the last post about the use, or non-use, of high-quality pool table covers. Most of you pool table owners do a pretty good job of recognizing the importance of using a cover, or at least listen politely as I describe the conditions in which a pool table cover becomes a necessity, rather than just a desirable addition to your purchase. So I salute the vast majority of you who choose to protect your investment! Keep up the good work to ensure many years of top pool table performance!

Desired takeaway: Your pool table cushions should be firm while giving a little bit (about 3/16″) when you press real hard on them. The ball should rebound with force equal to that with which it struck the cushion. If this is not the case, consider new cushions. Best solution: buy a Brunswick the first time and you won’t have to worry about cushion quality.

Are you ready to dive in to the technical side of the industry now? Well here we go…

Natural rubber comes primarily from more tropical climates, like Brazil and Southeast Asia, from the Hevea Brasiliesi, named after the tree was first discovered in Brazil several hundred years ago. These trees use latex to heal and prevent infection, instead of sap, which is what pines and other trees in North America use. The latex is then processed using modern methods into rubber-as-we-know-it. Nowadays, thanks to modern technology and bio-engineering, humans have figured out how to synthesize this material, and that is most likely how the rubber on your pool table came into existence. (See reference here)
Where Does Rubber Come From Video

I know: Thanks for the history lesson Judson, but how is this relevant? No matter how the rubber on your pool table is created, it is still composed of a combination of elements and materials. The quality of these components is directly related to the quality and durability of the cushions on your pool table. The cheaper the inputs, the cheaper the output, and that is what happens with more pool table manufacturers than I can count – many of them popular. The way I was raised was, “If you’re going to do something, do it right”. That is the Brunswick way, and that is why I am comfortable being associated with the Brunswick Brand.
Authentic Brunswick tables have the highest quality rubber available in the pool table industry. Not so with many, many other brands.

I know that we consumers often dictate that price be the most important part of purchasing behavior, and that this often leads to inferior quality. This is the case with several “popular” brands. The problem is that you, as a consumer, may save a few hundred dollars upon purchase for what seems to be a comparable pool table when compared to more expensive brands. Just like a car, though, what is “under the hood” is at least as important as the appearance of the table. I can’t count the number of times we encounter a pool table that is less than 3 years old, but already needs new cushions. The owner is shocked because they did not anticipate spending several hundred dollars more within such a short time period. So BUYER BEWARE: Ask about cushion quality, or call us and discuss this topic in more detail.

I mentioned that the quality of inputs dictates the quality of output. I am not a chemical engineer, but I do know that price is correlated with quality to a certain extent. Also, my understanding is that clay-based “rubber” is much less durable than latex-based. Clay absorbs elements like heat and humidity much more quickly than latex does. As I mentioned earlier, these are the two conditions which speed up the deterioration process. The cushion becomes either very hard or very soft. Either way, even recreational players notice that the balls are not bouncing off the rail correctly when this happens, and the cushions need to be replaced. One would think that, after several hundred complaints (and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent replacing factory cushions on certain brands) across the nation, manufacturers would upgrade the materials they use. Not so. There is even one “popular” brand that got so much negative publicity from this that they decided to start doing business under another name! Folks, I can’t make this stuff up… They really did. And the sad thing is that, since a pool table is often a one-time purchase, consumers aren’t able to quickly punish the manufacturer through purchase consequences.

That’s the way of the world, though, I suppose. For my part, I choose to do a bit of research before I make a major purchase, as I hope you do. I am certain that, if you do your homework, you will come to Everything Billiards to make your pool table (and related games and accessories) purchase. Because we care about quality and don’t mess around with anything that is not well-made. We sell Brunswick because it is the best. They’ve been around longer than any other manufacturer, and they have never had to change the name of their product to hide from bad reviews! So go with the best, which is available at all price points, and always uses high quality components, including rubber.

Thanks for tuning in, and I hope you found this excerpt useful!

Pool Table Cover: Why?

Some people think that a pool table cover is just an unnecessary purchase that might make the table look better – like a tie with a collared shirt. Not so. A pool table is an investment, and it should be protected just like anything else that you care about. At this point, you may be saying, “Well, I care about my Grandmother’s armoire, but I’m not going to put a cloth over it to protect it.” Actually, it is more important to protect a pool table using a heavy-duty cover than it is to protect any other item of “furniture” in your home. The reason is simple: If not properly cared for, the money you save by not purchasing a heavy-duty cover is a small portion of what it can cost you to fix damage from the sun or other abuse.

Sunlight is the #1 offender when it comes to non-covered tables. First of all, prolonged exposure to sunlight can bleach the wood, and is guaranteed to bleach the felt. These are the two most noticeable changes, but there is also “hidden” damage caused by the sun. Perhaps the most costly repair that could be prevented by regular use of a pool table cover is cushion dry-rot. Underneath the rail felt are rubber cushions. These are what the ball bounces off when you make (or miss) a bank shot. They are made of rubber, just like the tires on your car. When exposed to sunlight or excessive humidity, the cushions can either get rock-hard or turn mushy, like cheap bubble gum – they do not rebound to their original position. Instead of rebounding promptly, the pool ball will lose force because the cushion gives too much, absorbing some of the force. So you wind up with rails that are hard like a brick wall or resemble freshly chewed gum. Either of these changes the quality of play drastically. And when your cushions need to be replaced, you have to get new felt, too. This entire process costs several hundred dollars, and can often be avoided by simply using a pool table cover.

It is important to note that there are also different levels of quality when comparing pool table covers. The one included in most accessory kits resembles the shower curtain in a $29/night motel way out of town on the side of a secondary highway leading into the country. It tears easily, does not block sunlight, provides little protection against scratching, and is only good to keep dust off of the table until the cover itself disintegrates and needs to be replaced anyhow. The type of cover I recommend is made of a thick, durable, opaque naugahyde. It has form-fitted, stitched corners to hug the contours and corners of the table, and comes in a variety of colors. Some simulate leather, others have team logos or Brunswick symbols. All are available at Everything Billiards.

Here are some pictures of a recent client who neglected to cover his pool table with a heavy-duty cover:
Skylight: the Offender. . .

Notice the felt has faded drastically from the original color. The more vibrant green around the edges has been underneath the rails, out of the sunlight.

Of course, all of this depends upon the quality of the rubber used by the manufacturer. After years of experience with all types of pool tables, I have found that there are two brands in wide circulation that use high-quality rubber that is less susceptible to cushion dry-rot. One of them is Brunswick, the brand proudly carried and sold by Everything Billiards. More on comparing pool table cushion quality next week.

Ten Most Dangerous Things to Move

Coming in at #2…. You guessed it – pool table!

Pool tables are VERY heavy and awkward, making them one of the most dangerous things to move. Frequently weighing over 1000 pounds an measuring up to 9′ long, pool tables can be very dangerous to move, if you don’t know what you’re doing. (Click here for original article)

The good news is, we know what we are doing. So you can call us at Everything Billiards whenever you need your pool table moved (or assembled, or leveled, or replaced with a new one, or if you need anything else gameroom-related!).

There is a very specific process used to move a pool table, and one could easily damage the pool table, or themselves, if they are unfamiliar with the process. The first step is to take it apart. You’d be surprised at how many do-it-yourselfers neglect to perform this essential first step (Failed Move Pics), causing a lot of wasted time and hassle. A pool table breaks down into no less than 20 pieces, each of which needs to be properly protected for transport. We have specially modified our vehicles to transport each of these pieces safely, securely, and efficiently. The slate is the heaviest part of the table, and is also very expensive to replace. So, if you are trying to save yourself a few dollars, this is the piece to be cautious about. Before they know it, many pool table owners have hurt their back or broken the slate, creating a bill several times more than it would have cost to just hire us in the first place!

Perhaps the best example of why it is necessary to hire a professional to move your pool table comes from another group of professionals: professional movers. Everything Billiards has contracts with many professional moving companies, disaster restoration companies, and flooring companies to move pool tables that they encounter. Professional movers, by definition, are the people you pay to move things that are too heavy or too complicated for you to move. Disaster restoration specialists have crews of employees on their payroll who dismantle and reassemble your house. And flooring companies also employ carpenters and people who know how to work with their hands. There is a reason that all these professional tradesmen and professional heavy-object-lifters call us when they see a pool table: There is a lot more to moving a pool table than you can ever imagine.

While getting the pool table safely and securely from Point A to Point B is a task in and of itself, the real work begins at Point B. There is a formula to proper pool table placement in your house, and there is another specific process that must be followed to correctly re-assemble the table. The really tricky part comes once we get the pool table to your house. I have done carpentry since I can remember, and consider myself fairly skilled at disassembling, reassembling, and carrying heavy objects. However, I was surprised to find out how complex the entire process is. Once we get to your house, there is a 2 hour process to reassemble your table; and it only takes 2 hours because we have lots of practice (10-15 tables/week) and don’t waste a single minute. Once the pool table is properly placed, the frame must be leveled, then the slate must be leveled to within 1/5000th of an inch (.0005′). The rails and pockets must be reassembled, the slate seams must be sealed, and the felt must be put back on. Like anything else, that last sentence seems pretty short, but there is a LOT more to it than that!
Please feel free to watch our video on youtube.

If you decide to move your own table, and trust me we’ve seen it all, please remember how dangerous it is to do yourself. Bodily injury, damage to an expensive investment, and a pool table that has a severe “home court advantage” are what you will likely get if you decide to try and save yourself a few bucks. Trust that the professionals use us for a reason: even professional movers have no idea how to safely move a pool table, much less put it back together! Save yourself time money, and bodily integrity – call (336)988-8642 and schedule an appointment today!

Cues, cues, and more cues!

As I sit here on a rainy day, with a little extra time because we can’t arrive at the first afternoon job until 3, I was pondering what to write about next. There is no shortage of topics, and, seeing as I should probably cover the basics in addition to the Install of the Week, it was a natural progression to select cues as our topic for the next featured blog. For those of you who may be slightly impatient, click here to skip my editorial monologue and go straight to our Cue Vendors’ page. As CFO as well as Blog Manager, I know that we have over $10,000 of cues in stock right now. The widest selection anywhere near here, that’s for sure! So come check them out.

Most popular cue stick:

The Player’s HydroGel

This cue features a gel handle for comfort and increased grip from its soft rubber material. At $180, it is modestly priced for the consumer who wants a cue with a lifetime warranty against warpage, a low-deflection performance shaft, and a layered leather tip. Come try one on our Brunswick Gold Crown V that we have set up for play in the shop.

Now, the moment you have been waiting for… the fun fact of the day, as gathered from the BCA website:
“The cue stick was developed in the late 1600’s. When the ball lay near a rail, the mace was very inconvenient to use because of its large head. In such a case, the players would turn the mace around and use its handle to strike the ball. The handle was called a “queue” – meaning, ‘tail’ – from which we get the word ‘cue’.”

What can I say, I am a sucker for random trivia, and you never know, you may need this fact to be the day’s big winner on Jeopardy…

Shuffleboard!

Now available to demo and buy at Everything Billiards in central North Carolina (Greensboro, Charlotte, NC, etc.): SHUFFLEBOARD!

Our featured install of the week, and this week’s blog topic, includes:
1) an 8′ Brunswick Contender Oakland with Chestnut finish and Centennial felt, and
2) a CL Bailey 12′ Shuffleboard table.

We have offered our consumers the shuffleboard option through the Brunswick line as a special-order-only, but, due to an increase in demand, now have one on display in our shop and have plans to add more in the future to serve the Greensboro and Charlotte, NC markets, as well as southern VA and other various locations in between.

While pool tables have been a staple for family entertainment for well over 500 years, few people know that the game of Shuffleboard also dates back to the 15th century and very well could have been how our Founding Fathers took a break from writing the Declaration of Independence! The resurgence in Shuffleboard’s popularity has reintroduced me to a childhood novelty. Don’t tell Rob, but we have at least as much fun playing shuffleboard at the end of the day as we do pool…

Click here for more information on Shuffleboard History.

Shuffleboard is also a very easy, convenient, and space-efficient addition to any gameroom. Available in 9′, 12′, 14′, and 16′ lengths (and 2′ wide) all you need is a wall to put it against. Great for all ages and simple to play, why not get one to supplement your game room? We can deliver quickly, and now offer various options to suit all decors and price ranges. So call today or swing by our Greensboro location at 5711 West Market Street, Greensboro, NC. Or check out these and other products at the Everything Billiards website.

Sincerely from your online source for Everything Billiards updates,

Gold Crown V with Gulleys (Ball Return)

9′ Brunswick Gold Crown with Gulleys

Oh, what a bitter-sweet experience it is to put in a Brunswick Gold Crown V. This is the cream-of-the-crop, as far as competition-level play is concerned, in the billiards world. However, it is also one of the heaviest tables on the planet! Made of solid mahogany, and I do mean solid, the cabinet is no less than 1 3/4″ thick in any location.

And, being a 9′ table, it is, somehow, exponentially heavier than an 8′. Not to mention we had to hump the slate all the way around the house because the ground was wet and the yard had a steep incline. . . Did I mention that we also had to remove and load a 9′ Brunswick Medalist, which we took as a trade-in and now have for sale at the shop? However, once we got the multitude of boxes inside, the fun began!

There are literally scores of more pieces to a Gold Crown V, as compared to a furniture-style table. From the swiveling legs (pictured above) that enable us to level the frame more easily, to the swivel slate-levelers (pictured below), this table is insanely level when we are done with it, and many of these advances are included in the top-of-the-line Brunswick professional line. Disclaimer: All of our installs are perfectly level, the Gold Crown V just makes this process easier and more technologically advanced.

Slate Levelers

In addition to the more advanced leveling features, the Gold Crown V also has a lot of parts used to construct the rail assembly. All of these, in this case, are brushed nickel and complement the mahogany finish very nicely!

Done!

So, despite the sheer weight of this table and the fact that it takes a solid half-day to install with three people, the end result is, as always, well worth the effort. This table will be around for decades to come. Consistent with Brunswick’s mission, when you want the best and you want a product that can withstand use and hold up to the test of time, choose a Brunswick. You really can’t go wrong, especially with the Gold Crown V.

Brunswick Anniversary Pocket Billiards Table!

“From the 1946 Brunswick Billiard Equipment and Supplies Catalog No.101, the Brunswick Anniversary Pocket Billiard Table” has been spotted in the Charlotte, North Carolina area!

All of my life, I have had a profound respect for old things. I suppose it has to do with my upbringing. My father has always preferred older goods to new ones, especially in today’s society where 90% of goods (it seems) are designed to be used for less than 5 years and then replaced instead of repaired.

I spent several pleasurable years restoring older, historic homes for a living before I found my new home here at Everything Billiards. I get joy from bringing back the glory of a finely-crafted, 11-layer piece of trim, polishing up an 18th-century doorknob, and from sprucing up an older pool table for yet another generation to enjoy. I find it mind-boggling that it is often cheaper to buy a new whatever-it-is than to repair than to repair the old one nowadays. However, in our global economy and newer-is-better mentality, the customer gets what they want, I suppose. It seems like, even to my 32-year-old brain, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to! (Disclaimer: Brunswick products, today, are built to last, just like they always have been!) Oh, how I digress!

Here at Everything Billiards, we frequently get the opportunity to move, service, and sometimes even sell an “antique” pool table. I’m not quite sure if 66 years old qualifies as “antique” (vs. “vintage”), but I thought it was a very cool pool table. The owner of this Brunswick Anniversary table said he bought it from the original owner sometime in the mid-90’s. Considering that the original owner happened to be a hole-in-the-wall bar at a country crossroads, the table was in very good condition. I actually would consider the cigarette burns, small dents and scratches more “character” than damage… The walnut finish had been restored in such a way that you still knew that the table had decades of memories, had witnessed many Budweiser toasts, and had born witness to decades of enjoyment and the bonding of friends over a friendly game of pool. Ladies and gentlemen, that is what pool is all about. To this day, my Dad and I still gather in the basement every now and then for a friendly game of pool while reminiscing about and appreciating the finer things in life, like a finely-crafted, time-tested Brunswick pool table.

Here’s to craftsmanship…

A New Writer for 2012…


Meet your new columnist, Judson Bobo, aka Lead Installer and CFO of EB.

Here’s a bit of background before we launch into what promises to be the first of many 2012 Everything Billiards (EB) Blog Posts.

I have known Rob, the owner of this fine establishment, for approximately five years. I can honestly say that Rob is one of the most honest businessmen I have met, and that he values quality, integrity, and pride in his work over the opportunity to earn a quick buck. I, too, try to incorporate these principles into my everyday life, and that is why we decided that EB was a good fit for me and the company. I feel privileged to be a part of the founding of the retail operations at EB, which celebrated its first year at the West Market Street location in October 2011.

Through this blog, we’ll delve into the inner-workings of EB and the pool table industry, comparing brands, installation techniques & sales promotions. We will also explore the employees’ minds (which can be rather entertaining) and some of the more interesting “on-the-road experiences” of the installation crews.

In the first few entries to the EB Blog, I feel it is important to stress that this is not a “push” retail establishment. You will not be assaulted by an aggressive, “used-car salesman” or misled about any of our product or service offerings. We’re straight shooters at EB, both on and off the pool table! We carry only quality products at varying cost levels and avoid selling inferior products that will break down or need major repairs in the near future.
These are the main reasons why I feel comfortable having my name and reputation affiliated with EB. In a word: trust.

My hope is that you will not only find these writings entertaining, but informative at the same time. Feel free to share your feedback and let us know how we are doing!

Becoming a Billiards Technician is “Earned, Not Taught”

Over the years I have worked with many different technicians, attended training seminars with Brunswick and Olhausen Billiards (the top 2 manufacturers in the industry), read every training tool I could find to sharpen my skills and learn the “tricks of the trade.” Keep in mind I learned more through experience than anything else. We have consistently averaged moving and / or assembling 12 – 15 pool tables of all makes and models each week for many years now. The experience of moving pool tables day in and day out is something that you can’t read in a book or learn from watching a video. This is why becoming a paid professional in this industry is “earned, not taught.”

The learning curve for setting up a pool table start to finish is sharp, and the tools required to do the job right are expensive, so I recommend finding a professional installer to do the job if at all possible. I have witnessed many damaged pool tables as a result of DIY attempts. Most of the time, repairing what someone else screwed up is more costly than paying a professional the first time around. We typically charge around $250 – $300 to come to your home and build your pool table. This includes frame assembly and squaring (if necessary), proper placement, slate and frame leveling, seaming the slate together and the upholstery process (covering the rails and bed of the pool table). See our video below for a brief overview of what is involved. We cover most of the state of NC and parts of VA and can often recommend someone if you are out of our area.

How “Everything Billards” Came To Be

written by Rob Hyler

Sometime around the Y2K, I was introduced to the world of installing pool tables. As a lead delivery driver for a local furniture store in Greensboro, NC, I had much experience in moving heavy objects and putting together case goods, as well as customer service and scheduling. My boss decided to get into the pool table business and I was recruited to head up that department. Over the next year, I went through a training course on pool table installation / set up / leveling, etc. with our manufacturer and got my feet wet by setting up the first few display models for the store.

Over the next couple of years, I delivered pool tables for my boss and did side jobs moving pool tables from home to home, mostly for residential customers. After a few years of selling tables, my boss decided to discontinue the line of pool tables he sold (Westwood Billiards) and I decided to move on and start my own business, Everything Billiards. My business started out as strictly moving & servicing billiard tables. In January of 2010, I opened my first retail store and have worked hard to provide all things related to the billiards industry in my store. This includes new and used pool tables, cues, accessories, tools, cloth for pool tables, darts, dartboards and dart accessories, game room furniture, foosball, air hockey, game room novelty items and more.

Our current location is 5711 W. Market Street, Greensboro. We have approximately 4000 square feet of pool tables and related game room items and are the Authorized Brunswick Dealer for the Piedmont Triad area. Come see us for a safe and friendly experience in purchasing your new or used pool table!

Recovering Services Transform the Look of Your Pool Table

Over time and with much use, the felt covering your pool table can become marked and ripped.  This type of damage not only makes your table look worn, it will negatively affect your game.  Simply recovering your pool table with new felt will make it look brand new again. The covering on a pool table will begin to wear out after repeated use.  The felt may tear or become stained and dingy.

Whether it is used or one that you have had for awhile, recovering can bring new life to your pool table.  Replacing the old, dull felt with a new, colorful covering can give your entire game room a new look.The process of replacing the felt covering on a pool table is not as simple as it may seem.  It is much more complicated than recovering a seat cushion.  Pool table owners should enlist the help of professionals rather than attempt this job on their own.  A knowledgeable professional knows how to install new felt so that the table surface is level and smooth, reducing friction and allowing the balls to move freely about the table.  Any unevenness in the fabric can make your table surface unstable and unusable.

There are a variety of colors of wool cloth available to recover your pool table.  Owners may choose an interesting or bright color to make their table stand out and add some personality to their game room.  Others may choose a more traditional, understated look. With so many options available, the possibilities are endless. It may cost you more to hire a professional, but you can be sure that your pool table covering will be applied correctly without damaging your game.

Everything Billiards of Greensboro, NC offers professional pool table recovering services to the Piedmont Triad.  We have over 25 years experience servicing pool tables.  Call us at (336) 988-8642 to learn more.
