Is my pool table a 1 piece or 3 piece slate?
If you've found this article you've likely been asked if your pool table is constructed of one, two or three pieces of slate. In my experience, most pool table owners just aren't sure but when it comes time to buy, sell or move your pool table this is something you will need to know.
Why does it matter?
A one piece slate pool table uses a completely different method of construction and can be very dangerous to move. However, in most cases the table can be moved completely assembled without damage to the table.
A two or three piece slate design will need to be disassembled for relocation and then re-assembled. This method of moving protects the slate seams from being stressed and breaking which often occurs when someone tries to move the table in one piece.
