American Heritage Billiards - the world’s leading Pool Table, Game Table, Bar and Bar Stool manufacturer - presents the Savannah Pool Table. As part of the GreatGatherings Spotlight Series Pool Tables, the Savannah is the embodiment of the original "farm tables" from the turn of the century. Tables where friends and families gathered daily to rest their weary bones, share the joys and sorrows of their day, and replenish their souls. They gathered to celebrate births, anniversaries or life itself. They created memories to last lifetimes and tales to pass from generation to generation.
That was the inspiration.
The story behind how it was made…
To create this collectable we start with grade “A” American, “Eastern Knotty Pine”, one of the hardest materials in this typically soft, pine wood species. This pine was frequently used in barns constructed more than a century ago. It’s more durable than it is often given credit for and when finished properly, it becomes a very stable material. This is incredibly important because a billiard table is more than a beautiful piece of furniture; the frame must support more than 700 lbs. of weight and remain perfectly level forever.
Each piece of “Eastern Knotty Pine” we use is hand-selected so we can avoid any knots that may be much larger than 1 ¼”in diameter. We love the knots and natural imperfections in the wood since that’s what creates the look and style of this table, but we have to worry about stability and the lifetime of your finish if the knots are much bigger than what you see today.
To age and distress the wood, our artisans employ “old fashioned” woodworking techniques to create a custom finish surface designed to mimic the wear and tear endured of an age-old collectable. We’ve incorporated time-tested wood joinery methods into the cabinet corners to enhance the look of the table itself.
The Savannah is an engineering feat considering the weight of the slate surface we must support. The sharp angle of the legs helps create the beautiful look of the table, but forces us to build a slate frame like no other. It’s rock-solid and enables us to bolt the leg directly through the massive frame to provide the support we need to level an heirloom pool table.
The metal turnbuckles and the elemental rings and plates help effectively tie the cabinet and legs together and coordinate in design with the actual rail surface bolts to pull together this age-old furniture feel.
One can hardly wait to begin reminiscing with family and friends at your very next GreatGathering.
