Antique snooker dining table restoration

Antique snooker dining table restoration photos.  Some fantastic photos showing the restoration of an 8ft antique snooker dining table by Smarts. We have photographed before, during, and after restoration, through to the table’s installation in Tuscany.

This table was missing its original dining leaves.  Also, the sub-frame was weak, so we had a replacement frame made, along with new dining leaves, made from solid oak, and we French polished these to match the existing woodwork.

The end result is stunning.
