The Latest from the Robb Report

Just got my email from the luxury portal, Robb Report, featuring a story about a cool business in Albany, New York which specializes in restoring antique pool tables.

According to the story, Donald Bartholomay and Dave Grunenwald, the two craftsmen who operate Bankshot Antique Pool Tables spend anywhere from 4 to 10 weeks to restore pool tables made from 1870 to 1920.

The finished products are masterpieces of luxury gaming equipment, replete with leather pockets, oak and mahogany carved woods, and heavy slate slabs beneath the cloth playing surface.

Playing pool may never again attain the heights of these magnificent tables, which reportedly sell for anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000. By the way, if you're going to set your drink down to make your next shot, please use a coaster.
