Dine on your pool table
One of my favorite hobbies is to play pool. Unfortunately the town where I live doesn’t seem to care for pool halls, and the only tables to be found are in seedy bars. Needless to say, I haven’t played much lately. There have been many times over the years that I’ve wanted to purchase my very own table so I could play whenever I wanted. The main issue that always arises is space. I don’t generally have a lot of spare room, and my wife refuses to entertain the idea of getting rid of our dining room table. However, I just might be able to talk her into a FusionTable.
The idea of a pool table that converts to a dinner table has crossed my mind on a number of occasions, only they are rather difficult to find. The two biggest pitfalls to designing such a table are the height (pool tables are a bit higher than most dining tables) and the pockets stick out like sore thumbs. FusionTables take both of these into consideration. The Easy-Lift system allows you to raise the table a full three inches simply by lifting. The spring-assisted leg extensions take care of the rest. The pockets are completely hidden unless they are actually in use. They are made out of a hi-tech stretch memory cloth which will expand to accommodate the balls, then contract out of sight once they are removed.
It looks like these tables are being offered in a variety of finishes with matching chairs and benches. Pricing was conveniently left off of the site, but I think the old adage would hold true here. If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
