Golden West entry level pool tables are constructed using 1 ½” Oak
or Maple plywood on the frames.
All other components are the same as our premium pool tables
Golden West Premium level pool tables (excluding entry level tables)
are built using 1 ½” thick solid hardwood frames.
We choose Not to use Ash or Morante (imported woods)
due to the poor finishing qualities of the wood.

Buyer Beware of Imported Pool Tables:
When a table is produced overseas, the biggest concern of a foreign
manufacturer is how small of a box the product can be shipped in.
The primary goal for the foreign manufacturer is to ship as many items
in the container as possible, to be cost effective.
This is the main reason why all imported tables have so many parts,
small bases and why the table needs so many extra stretchers
to hold the frame together.
The salesperson for the import table will lead you to believe that these
stretchers are for slate support, on the contrary, these stretchers
are actually holding the table together with small screws!
The only way to then assemble the corners is to use small screws
and bed frame hardware.
Take a look at how much hardware is at the end of each stretcher!
Golden West builds a table for a lifetime of enjoyment.
We have the strongest table construction in the billiard industry.
Golden West uses only kiln-dried hardwoods through the
National American Lumber Association with United States
ecology in mind. The lumber generally used in import tables
has not dried properly and has been strip cut from forests
with little regard for future forest ecology and other
global environmental concerns.
Golden West pool tables are finished in America's most popular
finish colors and use only ecology approved techniques and
finishing products. Import tables use color-finishing chemicals
that are outlawed in the United States.
These chemicals are domestically illegal because of ecological
problems, air pollution, ozone depletion and human health issues.
These products are manufactured in factory sweatshops
with substandard health conditions.
These tables are then boxed and shipped in a dark, musty,
stagnant-air container where your table then sits for few months
while it is being shipped overseas.
This is the perfect environment for molds and toxins to form
in the untreated woods used to produce the table parts.
The Dept. of Agriculture and other import clearing companies
do their best to ensure the container is free of insects and pests,
but this is no guarantee.
Your table is then delivered to your home, usually in the same packaging
as it was shipped in the container. After a time consuming installation,
the table is then played on by you, your family and friends........think about it.
Golden West Billiard Manufacturing is exactly what our name implies.
We do all of our laminating, wood-turning and wood carving in house.
This is why you should take the time to truly look at the finished product
and compare it to the competition. Don't settle for a poorly constructed
inferior wood table, which will have less than quality finishing properties.
Other manufacturers frequently have to tint or paint to give you a wood
LIKE finish, or even use extra support stretchers that do nothing.
Other manufacturers use legs that are a "cookie cutter",
poor attempt to look like furniture quality.
A pool table is a long term investment.

most manufacturers bring in their tables from overseas.

that you can be proud of for generations.
