How To Determine If A Pool Table Is 1-Piece Slate Or 3-Piece Slate
In the United States, pool tables with 3-piece slates are the most common. There are some older tables with 1-piece slates, and they’re mostly from from brands like Empire or California Billiards.
To determine if your pool table has a 1-piece slate or a 3-piece slate, start by standing in front of the center pocket on your pool table.
Move your finger to the left of the center pocket, centering it between the two diamonds/ markers.
Look underneath your table in the area where you were pointing. If you see a gap or a seam, then it is a 3-piece slate pool table.
If your pool table doesn’t have obvious gaps or seams in the indicated area, it’s likely to be a 1-piece-slate pool table.
Typical 1-piece-slate pool tables have wood paneling and legs similar to the table pictured above.
