Da Vinci Industrial Pool Table
  • Da Vinci Industrial Pool Table

    SKU: 0029-646-HB

    The Da Vinci pool table is the embodiment of the movement of turning old into new again.

     

    Archimedes first demonstrated the use of a screw in 200 B.C. to create a machine to pump water.

     

    It was Leonardo Da Vinci in the late 1400’s who first demonstrated the use of a “screw jack” for lifting heavy loads. The screw jack and derivatives of its design occupied virtually every factory during the Great American Industrial Era.

     

    We have created a replica of an ancient “screw jack” lift device to provide the vast structural base integrity required to build an heirloom pool table. A pool table that must be perfectly level to play the century-old game, and more importantly, one that is designed to stay level, forever.

     

    Our extraordinary furniture design team completed the “Da Vinci” styling by combining the industrial age look with timeless materials and craftsmanship.

     

    Reclaimed lumber is used to create the rails and aprons of this model and is popular for a number of reasons: the wood's unique appearance, its contribution to green building, the history of the wood's origins, and the wood's physical characteristics such as strength, stability and durability.

     

    In many cases, the timbers from which these boards were cut had been naturally expanding and contracting for over a century in their previous installation. Some of the salvaged wood is over 150 years old so the planks are appropriately treated to lock in the history and its aged beauty.
