All sizes of table tops can be modified as well as any type felt covered table such as; bumper pool, poker, blackjack, craps, etc.

2. The Glow Table upgrade will convert a standard pool table either new or existing used table into a lighted table providing a soft glow through the felt of any color; the conversion allows the table to play the exact same way as it would with a slate top covered with felt but the plexiglass table top allows the light to travel through from below and the lamps when turned on will give a glow through the felt covering or when turned off the table will look as a standard table; the clear plexiglass will also provide a format for advertising, family crest, signage/logo, etc allowing for a personalized glow option yet allowing for normal play as you would find with a slate top.
