Had a billiard table sitting in my basement for a bit in pieces so I decided I ought to knock a ‘small’ project off my list.
From what I can tell, it use to be a Sears 8ft billiards table. It was missing a few pieces, but everything else was in pretty good shape after getting some fresh felt from Chilton’s.
I ended up 3d printing the diamonds and the corner pieces. They didn’t look super sharp when they were printed so I ended up using some high build primer and some light standing to make them look like a little nicer.
For some fun, I picked up a 25ft of LEDs, cut them into strips, soldered some wire onto the strips, and then slapped them under the bumpers and in the pockets.
I still want to come up with a battery pack and add a shelf to it, but otherwise, I think I’m done with the cosmetic stuff.
…also, it’s a bit harder to play with the colors fading through. Every time the color changes, the 8 ball seems to be in a different spot. Lol
