The images below show how we have French polished this antique snooker dining table to match the colour sample chosen by the customer.

This is an E J Riley table, and we have also polished an antique E J Riley scoreboard to match. (see last image).

When you buy a table from us, you will have the opportunity to be fully involved in the restoration, including being able to match the woodwork to any existing furniture you may own.  We prepare colour samples (polished pieces of wood) in various shades for you to choose from. All part of the service!
