    That's awesome! I've never seen anything quite like it either. Maybe I can get punkin to mount a coon for me as I steal some of her drift wood to make me one :roll_eyes:... No way I could afford a new one like that! Thanks for sharing, Tanya. I envy whoever owns that pool table!

    beautiful work! lol, wonder how it plays. too expensive for my taste. some person with more money than they know what to do with will end up with it for show and probably never play a game on it.

    another extravagent example, my soninlaw is a framer, and building houses in one o those ritzy ditzy gated country club resorts, and one house he is working on the guy paid $70000 for a front door for his house.

    $70,000 for a DOOR! You'd have to OPEN my door and take a tour to find somethin' worth that kind of money....a COMPLETE tour :big_smile:.

    But anyway, I was wondering if anybody read the specs on that table. I didn't know what bristlecone pine trees were. Where are ya Amy? They grow in Colorado; I'd like to know if you've seen any of 'em.

    I'm not sure this gentleman's plan is gonna work.....says he was offered $48,000 for it privately, but decided to offer it to the public. Right now the bid is $2550.00 with two days and seven hours left to bid (of course, the reserve hasn't been met :roll_eyes:/wonder what it is?).

    With 17 inlaid gold nuggets on the rim, free delivery anywhere in 48 states, and carbon dating thrown in to boot.....you know you want it :lol:! Just make sure you've got at least a 18' by 13'6" room to put it in.

    Think I'll have to pass on this one :wink: - but I do appreciate the craftsmanship!

    its a nice lookin piece of art work but cant help but to wonder how hard it is to keep the slate nice and level.that wood is gunnu shrink and expand forever, just ask somebody who builds log homes. i think its for looks and for somebody that has more money than what thy need.:big_smile:

    makes mine look like its been in a fire and thrown out of a 10 story building:sad2: i guess mine was given to me by a neighbor at the cost of finding as many friends as possible to help move the heavy thing.:tounge_out: id love to have that in my house with the raccoon hidden over to where people couldnt see it until they went over for a shot behind the table. itd be great to see the look on peoples faces to have a coon looking up at them:roll_eyes:
