What Makes a California House Shuffleboard Table Different?

Shuffleboard tables built by California House have several distinct features ranging from craftsmanship to aesthetic.

Loft Wood Shuffleboard Table

The Loft is built with a traditional feel that’s sturdy and inviting. This model would go perfect in a barn-house or would absolutely set off the interior of a home with an old-fashioned glow. See more of this table here.

Here are a few of the most notable:

  1. Wood selection: They use beech to construct their playfields, whereas most companies use maple. Why? Beech is a far tougher wood, unyielding and shock resistant to guarantee a long life.
  2. Polymer seal: The manufacturers took the advice of a chemist who recommended they reduce their polymer thickness from 1/4” to 1/8”. The fine polymer resin is applied on all sides of the board to balance-seal it. This produces a solid playing surface that won’t warp over time and a coating that won’t yellow.

  3. Playfield thickness: Instead of the typical 3” thickness, the rigidity of beech allows the company to make their playfields only 2.125”. This improves the playability of the surface by making it easier to adjust. More on shuffleboard table thickness here.
  4. Climate adjusters: These are an essential component of any long-lasting shuffleboard, which is why these manufacturers went to the trouble of custom-designing the ones for their game tables. These specialized climate adjusters allow the owner to keep their playfield at the right level of concavity no matter the time of year. Learn how to adjust climatic adjusters.
  5. Padded end collars: This is a feature you won’t see from many other shuffleboard brands, though it adds a lot to the game table. The padded collar looks nice, provides a comfortable grip, and protects the table from damage that might be caused by flying pucks.
  6. Inlaid details: California House doesn’t paint on their scoring lines and logos. Instead, they are inlaid with black walnut before the polymer resin is poured. This fine detail is just one of the many ways that this brand is creating superior shuffleboard tables.
