Styles with various pool ball capture methods

We make 7ft size pool dining tables in most of many design examples featured within this website. We use this page to present specific images of actual 7ft pool tables (all of which can also be made in other sizes). Most 7ft pool tables are made with slate bed as standard although lighter machined play beds can be fitted if manoeuvrability is required.

In particular, we present these table styles as examples to demonstrate and to distinguish between the various types of pool ball capture methods and which is an important consideration for pool dining tables and the consequence on the flow of play and the seating space.


7ft oak snooker dining table with red cloth

Narrow Leg Side Drawer

Balls collected in drawers on either side of the table. A registered design by Philippe Fitan evolved from the no-pockets game of Carom. Many styles have been created including the farmhouse style shown here with 4 inch slim legs


7ft oak pool table with side drawers

Wide Leg Side Drawer

A second example of the side-drawer method but with chunky 5 inch legs. Gives a more solid appearance but reduces slightly seating space.



   7ft pub pool table in modern finish

Pub Style Pool

The style of pool table most are familiar with. Collected in a return cavity at one table end. Designed this way to allow for a coin operated feature. Not appropriate as a diner table although a top can be fitted for table tennis or for buffet serving. Ideal for an outhouse or garage


7ft pool table in white-painted pine with a blue cloth

Narrow base kitchen

A style designed for the kitchen. The play area is set outside the supporting table base. The Balls are collected in retractable bag nets only visible when in pool game play.


7ft beech table with white base

Narrow base

Similar to the kitchen style but instead of bagnets the balls collected in a shallow tray. Aesthetically more appealing but the number of retained balls are restricted.

Sentinel Wide Base

The pool table play area is set directly above the table base and the balls are collected inside a drop pocket cavity inside boxed legs. A wider base maximised the seating space and when in dining mode is indistiguishable from a conventional dining table.
