I am thinking if getting a pool table and putting it in our double garage - I have no other rooms in the house big enough. The garage is brick built and very weather-proof, but is not heated.
Will there be problems with this? I am particularly thinking of low temperatures in the winter possibly affecting the cushion rebounds.
Does anyone have experience of this?
Also, any recommendations on where to get a proper table at a good price? I'm thinking of a reconditioned pub table, and am not interested in anything less robust. I've seen deals for around Â£450 plus Â£75 delivery.
Is a 7 foot table what you normally get in pubs, or are they 6 ft?
Finally, anything in particular I should watch out for?
Thanks in advance
For a small investment, around a $1,000.00. Why not put a A/C unit with a heat pump in it. Some thing like the hotels use. You'll be covered for winter as well as the heat and humidity for summer. Grainger carries
I have one in my garage and humidity is the only problem. In the winter place one or two 100 watt lights under the table to provide some heat. You might also use an iron set on high and iron the cloth before each use to dry out the dampness.
H'm....THAT sounds a bit dangerous for the cloth.
No more dangerous than it is to iron your clothes, Nat. Done it for years .... no problems.
I don't think bakewell said where he lives, but if it's International Falls, MN, I've heard the winters up there are a little different than those in Corpus Christi!
I think a good rule of thumb is that if you have to store your snow blower next to your pool table you may be in the wrong climate<BG>

Much drier in Int'l Falls in Feb.
To help with the moisture, attach a Waterbed Heater under the slate. (IMPORTANT ! - if you use the waterbed heater, remember to keep the temperature setting on low or it may heat the rubber on the rails too much and destroy them.)
Waterbed heater? Well then, make sure you get the scented candle, Karma Sutra oil, and the Barry White CD too.

It's been discussed here before. Many people iron their cloth. If there's a worry, I'd think that beeswax joints may be an issue. The biggest issue I've had was staining the bottom of the iron green. Scotch brite quickly cleans it up.
