The Houdini is one of the most unusual pool tables we've ever seen. A massive, slab-like body sits on two slanted legs, precisely arranged to balance the weight of the table.
Futuristic and beautifully-finished, the Houdini is as much a sculptured work of art as it is a pool table. But it's equipped with the finest components to ensure it plays to the highest standards.
The deep, chunky cabinet is made in a tough hardwood. It looks great finished in quality wood veneers, but can also be painted in gloss or matte black or white, or in any RAL colour.
The legs are securely locked into the cabinet underside during assembly. The finished Houdini is a real treat for the eyes; an optical illusion that will give your games room the 'wow' factor like no other table.
Into that cabinet is mounted a three-piece slate bed, precision-honed from Italian rock, calibrated and joined during installation. The result is an expanse of playfield with consistent ball roll quality right across its area.
Tournament-standard cushions made to either British or American spec, depending on the table you choose, provide ample rebound. The pockets drop into catch nets for easy retrieval after the game.
The Houdini is built to order, and can be made in one of three sizes. If you prefer the speed and excitement of American pool, the 8ft and 9ft Houdini tables are both equipped with larger American pockets and pointed cushions.
For fans of the more considered, pub-style British pool, where strategy is more important than power, the 7ft Houdini is full British-spec, with narrower pockets and L-shaped rubbers. The 7ft table is also physically smaller, and perhaps better suited to apartments and smaller games rooms.
As these tables are built to order, you can demand a range of finish options at the time of ordering. The entire RAL colour code library is available as a painted finish, or simple black/white in gloss or matte.
Alternatively, you can have your Houdini clad in a wood veneer. Choose from a wide range including Cherry, Wenge, Oak and Mahogany, for a classical, elegant effect.
The standard cloths fitted to the Houdini are the Hainsworth Elite-Pro for American tables, and the Hainsworth Smart for British tables, in a wide variety of colours. Hainsworth is the benchmark for pool table cloths, and offers the very best performance and longevity.
We can also fit cloths from other brands in other colours if you prefer, and even arrange for a custom-printed cloth to be made just for you. Drop us a line with your artwork to discuss your needs.
When you buy a Houdini from Liberty Games, we manage the whole process. When your table has been built, we will deliver it to you and bring it into your space. We'll build the table, level it, doublecheck it and give it a wipe-down, leaving you simply to rack up your first frame.
We'll also bring your exclusive accessory pack. It contains a unique cue rack available only to owners of these tables, as well as Aramith balls, a wooden triangle that matches your table, cues, and lots of game accessories and maintenance products.
Add a table top to your order, which converts the Houdini into a spectacular dining table or even a desk. A variety of tops are available, including table tennis tops - ideal for making the most of your games room.
The tops simply lift into place when needed, and also protect the table and cloth from spills, sunlight and dust whilst not in use. Just add your choice of tops to your order using the menu.
