Restoration. 9ft antique snooker dining table.

We have fully restored this 9ft Thomas Padmore snooker dining table.  The original dining leaves were missing, so we have used replacement table leaves of the same period, and re-styled, and French polished them by hand to match the table.

The table is raised and lowered to playing / dining heights by turning a handle. Easily transforms from a snooker table to  large dining table.

Please see images below for BEFORE and AFTER photos of the table.

Customer feedback.

We always love to receive customer feedback. Read some our latest customer comments here:

‘The table looks absolutely fantastic; you have done an excellent and meticulous job in restoring it – which is evident from every detail (resized and recycled pocket leathers and tea-stained nets) and I am pleased to say that the extra leaf looks perfect… It has been a pleasure to deal with you all throughout and I would be pleased to recommend you to any prospective customer.’ Customer comment, February 2014
