Our founders aim was to create the world's finest snooker tables. The International is the top of our standard range designed for exclusive private clubs, match rooms and quality homes.
The International really does represent the pinnacle of snooker table manufacturing. It is made throughout in carefully selected, attractively figured, solid mahogany, although other hardwoods such as oak are available at additional cost and stands on eight 225mm diameter legs, turned to an attractive profile with decorative flutings. The legs support a rigid underframe with 300mm deep side and end rails with spanning arches and fluted decoration. Even the internal rails are in the same carefully selected mahogany.
The underframe supports not only the outer edges of the slate bed but also the centre, a feature which is absent in many of its competitors.
The precision ground 45mm thick slate bed is in five sections with the meeting edges fitted with brass dowels and carefully checked in our factory to ensure extreme accuracy. During manufacture all parts of the table are assembled and the slates and cushions are matched to their own frame.
The model is also available in 10ft, 9ft and 8ft sizes, standing on six legs with 38mm thick slates on the 10ft and 9ft, and three sectional slates on the 8ft.
The cushion rails are manufactured from specially selected, attractively grained mahogany, which are shaped to a simple attractive profile. The securing bolts are concealed by solid sliding panels in the same high quality timber decorated in accord with the rest of the table. The cushions are then fitted with the superior match rubbers.
The bed & cushions are covered in the finest quality cloths from Strachan or Hainsworth if you prefer something different to the traditional colours. The solid brass pocket plates are covered in genuine moulded leather, deluxe cotton pocket nets and snooker pocket rails.
The polishwork is of an extremely high standard, superior quality durable polishes carefully built layer upon layer , bringing out the best in the natural wood grain and then finally hand burnished.
Lighting equipment is offered at reduced charges, with other optional equipment available at additional costs.
