Beautiful unique upcycled vintage snooker and billiards tables.
Perfectly smooth Welsh Slate and hardwood from reclaimed snooker tables are re-crafted into stunning furniture – each with a history & provenance all of its own.
Slate Furniture Works is the brainchild of Tom Parker and Ben Rayner. Based at a workshop in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, between them Tom and Ben have over 30 years’ experience in the restoration and installation of snooker and billiard tables that date back to the 19th and early 20th centuries.
In the spring of 2014, Tom and Ben were inspired by the upcycling movement to give a new lease of life to snooker and billiard tables that were at the end of their playing days, re-using their high quality materials to craft beautiful, durable and tactile furniture to individual requirements. In particular, they believed that the Welsh slate beds which had spent their entire working lives hidden under green baize could become stunning table tops, ideally suited to both indoor and outdoor settings.
Alongside their new enterprise, Tom and Ben continue to restore snooker, billiard and pool tables, and install them for clients right around the world. As a result, they personally source all the materials for Slate Furniture Works, ensuring that each piece they create has a history and provenance all of its own.
Whether it’s a fully restored snooker, billiard or pool table, or a hand built slate-topped table for the kitchen, patio or conservatory, for Tom and Ben the journey always starts at the same place – the customer’s individual requirements.
