    Wanted to make a custom one of a kind Brunswick pool table logo for my man cave project. This is their old logo that I carved from HDU. Did the letters in 23k gold leaf and hand painted the rest of the letters and border. Not another one like it in the world!

    Nice not having any restraints and being able to do what you enjoy :)

    Great idea Joe. Can't believe I didn't think of that myself. I've got some laying around here somewhere.

    Oh and the paint is some twenty year old 1-shot :) Busted out some new quills!

    That is so neat. :thumb:


    I don't have the capability of doing 3D things like that for myself, but isn't it rewarding, what all us sign people can do for ourselves or families and it doesn't cost a thing..... well basically nothing ??



    By the way, Maniac.... I have a whole room full of leaded paint.... gallons, quarts and pints. :omg: Maybe even some 1/2 pints..... :Big Laugh

    That is awesome. So the real question is...what type of pool table will be in the man cave??

    The one closest is the Brunswick table. I'm in the process of doing a ground up restoration on it.

    Excellent. I love drop pocket tables. I would assume you'll put the correct color cloth on it then ;-)

    I'm jealous!!!
    I always wanted to have a pool table in the basement. Instead, I ended up with my shop.

    I started out in my basement too. That was forty years ago. About 900 s.f. of usable space. I wish I could go back to that time. Bigger with more employees just means more headaches!

    I'll be doing a custom steampunk wrap on the table, replacing with new rails, and putting on dark green Simonis tournament cloth. Will be a fantastic table when I finish it.
