DIY classic Pool Table
Most woodworking experts do not like MDF. Some claim that it is only a combination of glue and sawdust, hence the poor quality. But for most of us, it is the most affordable, lightweight material.
If you are looking for an excellent and sturdy pool table, then you have found one. The material you use will also not freeze your pocket. Yes, cheap but of quality.
The primary material is medium density fiberboard, or if you like it, MDF. And to prevent the top from warping, the underside has a honeycomb grid.
The inclusion of compartments that provide racking space will wow you. You can be sure to enjoy lots of storage space for your billiard ball tray and cue sticks.
Walnut railings and the red cover include gold trims that add a classic touch. Making such a table will be a sense of inviting even to your enemies.
