Antique Rollover snooker dining table

Images showing the restoration of an antique rollover snooker dining table. This table is by Gamage’s of London.

The woodwork has been carefully stripped, and is being traditionally French polished this week.

Rollover tables are a great space saving idea. The playing surface ‘rolls over’ to become a dining table. Two tables for the price of one!
