MDF Bed Home Pool Tables
MDF Pool Tables
A pool table that uses a play surface other than slate is usually described as an ‘MDF’ or ‘wood bed’ table. Although slate bed pool tables are well known for their accuracy and precision, MDF pool tables have been designed to fit in to a very particular area of the games table market.
One thing that is immediately obvious when browsing around for MDF pool tables is the price points that these tables can achieve. When you are looking to purchase a pool table for fun, or maybe even as a game for younger children you can part with just a couple of hundred pounds and enjoy a very acceptable game.
Where the more cumbersome commercial standard tables require dedicated 2 man couriers and installation procedures, MDF tables can generally be flat packed and distributed using more main stream couriers. As a customer this means much quicker lead times from ordering the pool table through to receiving it at your home.
Commercial pool tables are heavy and not designed to be moved around. MDF tables however are light enough to be put to the side of a room when not in use and they even have specific space saving designs such as folding legs.
Quality of play
As you ascend through the MDF pool table range you will find that the standard of play closely matches that experienced on a slate bed pool table. MDF designers have in some cases fitted the same cushions, top rails and cloth found on a slate table to get the right result. These tables are great value, great fun and can play extremely well.
