What should I look for in a pool table?
A pool table is a piece of furniture on which you play games. As such, look for the same things you would look for in fine furniture, then look for those things that impact playability. Fine furniture should be well built, look good, fit the room décor and last generations. Quality construction, slate, cloth, cushions, and installation impact playability. In some cases the appropriate pool table is one without a fine furniture look, but it should still possess the playability factors.
Why do some pool tables cost more than others?
Buying a pool table is like buying fine furniture. In general, higher priced pool tables have more carving or intricate details. Other factors that impact the price are construction quality, wood species used, finish, pockets and other options. Its important to note that the price does not necessarily translate to a better playing pool table.

How do I take care of the cloth on my billiard table?
First keep the table covered when you are not using it. this will protect the table from dirt particles, which can breakdown, the cloth fibers and shorten the life of the cloth.
To clean dirt and dust use a billiard table brush. Brush the cloth regularly. Brush the bed cloth away from the nameplate. brush the rails clockwise. after brushing, wipe pockets or pocket liners with a damp cloth to remove lint. Brushing helps remove dirt, chalk, dust, and lint from both the bed and cushions.
If extra cleaning is needed you can use al felt cleaner, and/or occasionally vacuum the table. When using a vacuum make sure to use a mild suction with a fine brush attachment. Vacuum the table the same way you brush the table.
When a new cloth has been used for a short time, small half moon spots will appear. These are cue stabs which are caused by players allowing their cues to come into contact with the cloth after striking the ball. These marks will gradually become less noticeable as the cloth ages. This type of damage is caused more frequently if the edges of tips or ferrules are allowed to become sharp or rough or if the tips do not exactly fit the cue. The dropping of balls or rough placing of rests can cause similar blemishes.
