The meticulously created wood stain finishes emphasize

species. Our state-of-the-art facility utilizes commercial

Hardwood lumber, strong and sturdy with the distinctive
grain patterns that offer lasting beauty, has been
the preferred material for fine furniture, flooring,
cabinetry and millwork for many decades. Solid hardwoods
have the integrity that only their natural origin
can provide. No man-made material can duplicate hardwood's
warmth, character and authenticity. Recroomonline.com
are built exclusively of hardwoods, containing no
artificial materials such as pressed board, laminated
wood, veneers, particleboard or plywood.
The characteristics of hardwoods allows it to be
more intricately carved, bent and turned than other
materials. Hardwoods surpass substitute materials
in their ability to hold nails and screws. They
withstand stresses, loads, shock and abrasion. Hardwood
manufacturing techniques such as dovetail or tongue-and-groove
joints utilize the strength of wood itself and do
not depend on metal or hardware that can bend or
loosen. Naturally distinctive hardwoods maintain
a beautiful, trouble free finish that becomes even
more beautiful with age and offers lasting value.

Legs & Support
It's hard not to notice the symmetry and design of
an finely crafted billiard leg. They are designed
to enhance the overall look rather than just provide
support. To create your leg, custom select hardwoods
are bonded grain against grain for maximum strength
Solid carved legs are mounted by dropping a 3/8x8"
machine bolt deep into the center of the leg where
it threads into a sunken anchor; hollow legs are mounted
with a shorter bolt that fastens to a threaded metal
bracket. All of our legs are adjusted into position
through a slotted opening, then secured by tightening
against a domed washer with serrated edges.
Our design takes advantage of the meticulously machined
one-piece post leg and allows all of the cabinet weight
to rest directly on the leg shelf. All other manufacturers
hang the panels on the leg with a dowel or bolt which
cannot support the weight or keep the slate level.
We insure your investment will stand the test of time
and the occasional body weight laying across for the
3 bank eight ball in the side.
Most manufacturers use a thin sheet of plywood as
a platform for the slate. With a frame that may be
only 3/4" or 1" thick, often made of laminated
wood and veneered, it is impossible for them to drop
the cross members into a dado cut as you see on the
left. There isn't enough thickness in the cabinet
to do that. Instead, they glue or staple two blocks
of wood to the inside of the cabinet wall and run
a bolt through the wooden blocks and cross member
to keep the crossmember in place. Making a virtue
of necessity, they then trumpet the fact that their
crossmembers are bolted to prevent the frame from
"Magna-Board" is a smooth, seamless surface designed
to utilize the cabinet, to provide unparalleled slate
bed support. Recroomonline.com utilizes twin one-piece
center beams to keep the cabinetry square and true
forever. These cross laminated beams interlock to
one another and are then mortised into all four cabinet
side walls to prevent any cabinet warping or twisting.

growth rings to create a beautiful canvas that will
