    I wrapped my shop pool table in carbon fiber I printed. Came out good.

    I can offer two.

    This group of carbon fiber seamless tiles was made using a different pattern than is commonly used and all over the web. IMHO, it does an excellent job of creating the illusion of a very even fibered carbon fiber. It is not photographic however. It is procedurally generated by an image editor.

    If you are looking for a photographic rather than a computer generated fill, take a medium to high resolution photograph, square on and stretched out evenly, of an actual piece of carbon fiber fabric. You can then use Genetica 3.5 to make it into a seamless tile or you can contract with me to do it for a fee (you still supplying the photo).

    I drilled out the old 1/2" metal slugs then inlaid each 1966 quarter into the table alternating between heads and tails, then sealed under clear epoxy. The table was originally manufactured in 1966 so they're in there for life.
