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.

A customer had a full size snooker table which had been in storage for 40 years. The table had suffered water damage, had loose veneers, and the steel blocks had corroded.

Here are the images of that table following a full restoration and French polishing, and installation at the customer’s house.

Antique snooker table restoration.

When we restore an antique snooker table, we always offer our customers a choice of colour when it comes to the French polishing. Here, five samples of mahogany have been prepared and French polished to slightly different shades. The table will be polished according to the customer’s preferred finish.
