GW Kling's History
Mon, Jan 2nd, 2017


Custom 6 legged GW Kling

The Kling Billiard Table was named in honor of the All-star Chicago Baseball legend "Johnny Kling". Who to this day is most recognized for being the starting catcher in the final game of the 1908 world series. Kling was also the manager for the Chicago Cubs, Boston Rustlers, Boston Braves, and Cincinnati Reds.

One of Kling's hobbies aside for baseball was playing pool. He would play for money and even owned his own billiard room in Kansas. Kling would often win sizable amounts of money so much in fact that he didn't have to play baseball to make it. Kling enjoyed the billiards so much that he even told the reporters of "Baseball as Business Training" of 1911 that when his baseball career was over, he would devote himself to pool and billiards full-time.

Now we see that Kling's dream ended the way he had planed.

About Wood Laminating:

What is laminating? Laminating is a technique of assembling a material in multiple layers, mainly in order to improve strength There are different lamination processes, depending on the type of materials being laminated.

About Wood Turning:

Wood turning is a craft using a wood lathe with hand-held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around the axis of rotation. Much like the potter's wheel, with a wood lathe it is simple to generate a variety of forms, this operation is known as wood turning.

Wood Carving:


Wood carving is a way of woodworking by means of a cutting tool in one hand like a chisel and some sort of mallet by the other hand. With one tool you sculpt and with the other you drive the power, as you can imagine this takes time, talent and much experience.
