9ft Burroughes and Watts Billiards Table restoration.

Going through our workshops at the moment is this 9ft mahogany Burroughes and Watts billiards table.  This table had been ‘modernised’ in the 1980’s with unsympathetic mouldings being added, and the table being polished an interesting burgundy shade.  Oh dear.

We have replaced the cushion mouldings, and over the next few weeks we will strip the woodwork and completely restore the table to its former glory. We will be using traditional hand polishing and natural, high quality materials.  Watch this space for the next update.
