Woodworking and pool, also known as billiards, have a long-standing connection through the construction of pool tables, cues, and related accessories. Woodworking skills are essential for creating high-quality, aesthetically pleasing, and functional pool equipment and furniture.
The wooden frame must be carefully crafted to ensure proper support for the heavy slate playing surface. The rails, which are typically made of hardwood, require precise woodworking to create a consistent bounce and accurate ball response. In addition to functionality, woodworkers often focus on the table's aesthetic appeal by incorporating intricate carvings, inlays, or veneers.
Some custom cue makers employ intricate woodworking techniques such as inlays, marquetry, or segmented construction to create visually striking and unique cues. The joint where the cue's shaft and butt connect often involves metal or synthetic materials, but some cues feature wooden joints as well.
