What Makes Our Billiards And Pool Tables Look So Good?

Exceptional Fittings

Much like a home, fixtures and fittings complete the overall look, pool tables are very similar. There are many items on a pool table that you can customise and in the end bring it all together to give you that fantastic result. Here are a few thing that you can customise on ýour table;

Pocket brackets

All of our tables have solid brass pocket brackets that you can customise. Customising the pocket brackets can give it a whole new look and feel. You can have chrome plated or brushed nickel plated to create that clean modern look. We have seen a lot more gloss and brushed brass come back into fashion. If you are looking for a unique colour to your pocket brackets you can always go with a powder coating, this can be done in any colour that you like.

Pocket Nets and leathers

Nets and leathers are next on the selection to be customised. If you are looking for a high quality cotton net, we provide these in Black and White. As well as providing a high quality cotton net, we do also provide genuine leather options, available in brown and black. We can use other colours that are available if Black and Brown are not what you are looking for.

Toes or feet

Adjustable toes for leveling are next,  our standard adjustable toe is low impact and uses nylon base to reduce damage to floors. There are many other toes to choose from, plenty of styles if you prefer something different, we can fit it.


Inside the cushion is cushion rubber. You can choose from high quality extruded rubber or English Northern rubber.

Distinguished style

Almost all features of a pool table are customisable, we have designed tables to suit almost every interior style. If you can not find a style that fits what you are looking for, please let us know and we can help design exactly what you have in your mind.

Timber selection

The type of timber plays a key role in the look and feel of your Billiards table. Natural colours and grain structure changes with each timber.  If you are unsure as to the look and feel you are wanting, always happy to help.

Leg styles and frame depth

These features categorize table styles. For example, a narrow-turned leg is more Victorian. Square legs can be either modern or art deco.

Moulds and unique inserts

Custom moulds and unique inserts in the frame, legs or cushions are all choices available to customers. customizing these features can be a very personal and rewarding experience.


The finish on the timber is the most popular modification. High gloss to mat surfaces are achievable. French polishing is the most traditional finish. Recent years have seen custom colours resurface, like blacks table with a charcoal cloth.

Premium Surfaces

If you’re buying a new Billiards table, the cloth is very important to consider. Good cloth is like good tires on a car. As you develop your game, you will want the cloth to perform and wear well. The cloth is also the first thing we ask you about when restoring a table.

Types of cloth

English cloth has a nap. Which means it’s directional,  American and European cloth is different because it’s napless. We use 100% woollen cloth from the top-quality brands. Our preferred cloth is the superior English ‘Strachan’ brand. Another more cost-effective brand is ‘Mitchell’, anything cheaper than these brands, we have found that the quality drops significantly. Traditional green is the best colour for the game and it’s easy on the eye.


There are many other colour choices available. Both the Strachan and Mitchell brands have colours to suit your decor. While some of these dramatic colours look good to start, they don’t always wear the best over time. We recommend sticking to the green, burgundy or charcoal.

Superior Construction

At Harry Evans & Sons, we build our own handcrafted billiards and pool tables at our workshop in Melbourne. We only use solid kiln-dried furniture grade timber. No MDF or particleboard. Laminated timbers provide structural rigidity.


The leg frames are housed and bolted using mortise and tenon joints. This is the traditional construction used for centuries. After levelling the frame, we fit Italian slate and marry them together. After 137 years of being in the industry, we found that this makes the strongest bond.


Smaller tables use 3/4″ slates and 1½” for larger sizes. The slates are hand ground for superior accuracy.


All table components are part numbered and serial numbered. This makes our tables individual, easy assembly and transportation.
