This Huntington Beach community center clubhouse just underwent a huge transformation. The property management contacted us to assist in moving their two Peter Vitalie pool tables for new flooring.

This Tustin, California family’s 90+ year old pool table was no longer able to provide a decent game of pool. Not only was the cloth old and worn, the cushions weren’t providing the bounce necessary for good play. We had to fight with the aging wood rails a bit to get the new rubber on […]
