Exceptional Fittings

Fixtures and fitting complete a house. Pool tables are much the same. There are many items that are customizable.

Pocket brackets

All our tables have solid brass pocket brackets. You can customize the pocket brackets in different ways. Chrome plated and brushed nickel plated to create a clean modern style. Gloss or brushed Brass are coming back into fashion. Powder coating is also available. It’s very unique and can be any colour.

Pocket Nets and leathers

Nets and leather selection is the next customization. We have white or black high-quality cotton nets. Snooker rails or empire rails are also an option. Only genuine leather options are available. Brown and Black leather are in stock. But we can use any colour that is available.

Toes or feet

Adjustable toes for levelling are next. Our standard adjustable toe is low impact and uses a nylon base to reduce damage to floors. There are many other toes to choose from. Whatever style you prefer, we can fit.


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

Distinguished Style

Almost all features of pool tables are customizable. We’ve designed tables to suit almost any interior style. If you can’t find a style that fits your room, lets design one together.

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.

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 matt surfaces are achievable. French polishing is the 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 superior English ‘Strachan’ brand. Another more cost-effective brand is ‘Mitchell’. Anything cheaper than these brands, we’ve found that the quality drops. 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. Stick 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.




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.
