American Shuffleboard Table Refinishing Projects
Matt Kennedy’s Project:
Here is the table out of storage after many years, I think it is from the late 40’s or 50’s. I bought it on eBay for $300 from a guy in New York State.
As you can see, it is a bumper shuffleboard table. The pins in the center were coin operated when it was used in a bar. The playing surface was very solid, but needed to be completely stripped.
Here is the original American Shuffleboard Company label.
The scoreboard glass got broken while in storage, but all the pieces were still there. This gets mounted on the center of the table and is connected to scoring buttons at each end of the table.
There were 2 solid leg units with adjustable feet for leveling.
The scoreboard cleaned up real nice. If you look close at the lower right side, you can see the cracks in the glass. The electronics work, but I need to replace the scoring number lights.
The sides of the table were scrubbed with a household cleaner and scraped clean with a razor blade scraper. All the chrome was removed and hand polished. New light bulbs brightened up the playing surface.
