How to Make a Lightweight Pool-Table Top
- Measure the playing surface of the pool table.

- Lay the ½-inch thick Styrofoam flat and place the cut-down 2-inch thick Styrofoam on top of the ½-inch Styrofoam and center it.
It is ideal for pool tables because it naturally splits into wide, level pieces, and can be easily ground and polished into a perfectly flat surface. While heavier and more expensive than wood, slate ensures that the play surface remans smooth and level.
