Pool Table

Pool Table

Postby regionalchaos » Wed Aug 24, 2005 1:36 pm

Howdy folks.

This year I decided to build a pool table for burning man. Last year I didn't see any out there, and I'm a big fan of pool. Anyway, I'm planning on having the table set up in my camp at first. However, I really want as many people to enjoy it as possible, and at camp there may be a limited amount of people coming in.

So I was thinking about trying to find a friendly bar/club/theme camp, that would appreciate having a pool table in their space. Anyone interested?

I'll try and post a pic of the table in a bit...

Hm. Maybe you could get some bar tenders to tip off patrons to its existence and location. Just a thought really.

We're an afternoons pub/bar - Citrus Camp. We don't have room for a pool table, but we'd be happy to tip people off as to your location. It would work best if you found a pub/bar near your location. Citrus is at 4:30 & Fetish this year.

Where's your camp? I'd love to come play a game (even though I suck) and tell you about my pool-related project for next year...

Nice job, it looks really nice.

One more day to departure!

The table ended up at Swinger's Lounge. Every time I stopped by in the evenings people were playing. It worked out great!

By the way- How'd you do the Man logo? Is it roughed up, or actually painted on?

I bleached it out. Specifically I used Clorox Bleach Sticks (about three of them). Before I glued the felt, I taped out the design, then spread the bleach gel inside of it. I let it sit and dry for about 5+ hours. Once it was totally dry I rinsed it off with a weak vinager solution to counter act the bleaching process. Overall I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks! Really looks slick. I might try that bleach technique on my portable minigolf holes!

It doesn't look like anyone has been here in a while. Hope you all are well.
