A friend of mine and I are interested in building a couple of billiard
chairs so that we can have something to sit on while playing pool.
Hopefully he will be sitting down more than me.
Don't know if you've seen them but they have a notch in them where you
can rest the pool stick and sometimes have a hole in the arm or a
place to set a beverage (beer).
thanks for any info,
Someone could go with that, but my preference would be to design my own. I'd
incorporate support for a beverage, maybe a small tray for snack food and
make it swing away or fold down when it's not in use. A small slot for
holding the butt end of a cue would be easy to make. The great part about it
is that it could be a one of a kind, unique construction that no one else
owns. To me anyway, that's what woodworking is about about, making that
I have a couple of the stools you mention. The ones with coasters and
notches builtin. A bought them with my pool table long before I was
ever involved with woodworking. Looking at them now, there fairly
simply engineered. Go into a billard supply store and take a look at
thiers, it should be easy to sketch down enough info to build them.
Mine are just fairly square stock, with notched plowed out to put the
pieces together. Assemply seems to held together with glue and screws
and then the screw holes were plugged.
If that doesn't work for you, let me know and I'll draw you a quick
diagram this weekend and post it.
