Golden West selects hardwood that is premium, kiln-dried hardwood. Golden West hardwoods resists warping and will ensure maximum rigidity. Golden West also offers the widest frame displacement for best slate support.
We use all North Pacific Lumber, premium plywood from local Pacific Northwest lumber companies. Golden West does not use any imported plywood.
All Golden West pool tables are built according to the BCA
(Billiard Congress of America) specifications.
Golden West only manufactures pool tables with 3 pieces of 1” thick
registered and matched Diamond Honed Slate.
All slates must be precision to .020 in width and .010 in length.
One piece slate tables are only found on Coin-op pool tables or cheap
Imported pool tables.
All pool tables, sanctioned by the BCA, to be used in World Tournaments,
must have a 3 piece 1” thick slate.
Our rails are available in many custom woods, finishes, and stains. Our oil and wax finish guarantees that with minimum care you can maintain the rails to a fine furniture look. We can hand inlay mother of pearl and abalone diamond sights, coins, trinkets, and other materials into the rail cap to personalize your billiard table.
We use the finest hardwoods available to create a stunning top for your table. The following materials have been used to augment a table's beauty.
Quarter Sawn Oak
Again, we can build your rails from most any hardwood you desire. Further, Golden West is a pioneer in the development of the 2 piece rail assembly using 8/4 quality hardwood and a sub rail with a hardwood rail cap, which is connected to the slate with a 3/8 four prong 1/2 inch barrel tee nut. This has become a standard in the industry, except the competition will not spend the money needed. They would rather use a 5/16 aluminum 3 prong tee nut and bolt into the wood rather than making the correct connection.
