Snooker Table
About this creation
I found myself thinking "There must be a use for these palm tree segments"




Enlarge image
   In response to some of the recent reviews, let me clear up a few things:



Enlarge image
   Snooker, Pool, and Billards are actually 3 different games. They each use their own different (although similar) equipment, and have different rules & objectives.



Enlarge image
   Comparing Snooker to Pool or to Billards is like comparing American Football to Rugby, or Hockey to Lacrosse, or Tennis to Ping Pong.



Enlarge image
   The games are similar and doubtless related to eachother but are distinctly different. Being skilled at one game does not guarantee success in the other.



Enlarge image
   This is a Snooker table, with Snooker balls and pockets.



Enlarge image
   It is loosely inspired by a Brunswick table, and is a little undersized for the scale of the balls, so i used only 10 red balls, a commonly played variation on the actual rules of Snooker that include 15 reds.



Enlarge image
   Notice that a Snooker Table's bumper rails curve into the pockets, unlike the straight angles of a Pool Table.



Enlarge image
   The word "Billiards" is commonly used these days to refer to all Ball & Cue games, but "Billiards" is in fact the name of a specific game. A true Billard table is pocketless.

When I saw the main pic icon I thought "adorable". Looking at this closer I'm going to change that to "fabulous".
