Ever wondered why Ikea don't do snooker tables? In this recent installation Alexander is aided by our specialist fitter Martin as they take us through the various stages involved, starting with the frame assembly and moving on to the precision balancing, covering, and fitting of the pockets. The whole process took around 5 hours to complete and is notable for the highly specialised traditional techniques employed. Martin's wealth of experience came to the fore and by early evening our very satisfied client had his full sized table installed and was ready to begin his first game. The room, which had reportedly been used as a small ballroom by the previous owner, had been transformed, and this magnificent centrepiece had found the perfect setting.
