    Thanks. I’ve maned to upload a few images. They’re not brilliant but hopefully give you an idea. I have a video too, which I might upload to YouTube.

      Looks nice ,I notice it has bolt up pocket plates ,table looks like oak and I have seen similar leg design before ,but can’t think where .Are the cushions original with the table ,or the table might not be all that old .Looks very good and in great condition .

        That looks a very nice table Rich Moor. You won't regret it

        I had a table installed not long ago by a very reputable fitter. I was pretty disappointed to say the least. I definitely won't use him again and will hopefully look to get Geoff booked also, when needed.

          And yes, I’ll definitely be using Geoff Large to help move it. Like he says, it’s just a busy time 👍

          Found some info on A&D (Alliance Snooker) looks like they source tables, new and old and have some reproduction models of classic tables made by Ashcroft's and B&W etc.

          I like the broad bow leathers, haven't seen a table in recent years with those, but used to play on one with them as a lad in my dad's WMC.

          Enjoy it, it looks worth waiting for to get it set up right.
          No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

            Definitely looks like Oak. I’d say it’s maybe a modern table with a classic styling? Very nice.

              Looks great. I like the colour of the pocket leathers too.

                Thanks all. I suspect the table is fairly modern. I don’t think the wood has been refurbished and there’s not a mark on it. I’ve messaged Alliance to ask if they know anything about it (mainly through curiosity).

                  How many slate bearers (muntins) are under the slates ,modern tables 1980 onwards only normally have one central bearer ,older tables have 2 or 3 .

                    Mahogany and fairly modern. I think it’s an Alliance Snooker model. Sold a 10ft safe leg design a few years back.

                      Mahogany? The rails maybe, but the frame? The grain doesn’t look quiet right and mahogany is naturally a red colour? Unless they’ve used oak wood stain?

                        Thanks all. I’m very keen to know the make. I’ve message Alliance and shared some pictures too.
