This here's a fancy eatin' table
Kingdom Billiards has the solution for pool sharks who don’t have room in their houses for a billiards table.
The company based in Sacramento, Calif., has designed classy dining room tables that fit snuggly over its high-end pool tables.
“You can add the table top to any pool table for $595,” a company salesman said today at the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show.
This product had to be inspired by the television show, “The Beverly Hillbillies,” whose characters passed around a crock possum grits on the end of a pool stick while mistakenly thinking their billiards table was meant for dining with good company.
It’s a good idea to purchase a vinyl cover to sandwich between the two tables to protect the pool table’s felt-covered slate top from spilled gravy. It’s highly recommended if you plan to invite me over to dinner or one my neighbors from up Turkey Hollow because we have a tendency to drool when we see food.
But then again, money wouldn’t be an issue in your home because these finely-crafted maple pool tables start at $4,800 without the parts for spreading the fine china.
