Technical Information: The following is from page 36 of the 1916 Billiard Book Catalogue of the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company.
Design patent granted May 7, 1912. Manufactured under various patents granted from 1900 to 1916.
Wood and Finish: Furnished in quarter-sawed oak and Mahogany. The oak is finished in our No. 6 medium or golden color, The mahogany is finished in our regular No. 2 stock mahogany color with white holly inlay with black border. After being given the ordinary cabinet finish it is hand rubbed, and can be more easily kept clean than any other furniture finish.
Construction: This table has what is known in our factory as the semi-jumbo framework, which means that it is unusually heavy and has enormous carrying weight. The top of the side and end sections are 5" across, gradually tapering to 1 1/2" at the bottom, with the sides and ends 14" high. Both sides veneered. It is also provided with single cross stretchers, 8 1/4" long by 1 1/2" thick by 14" wide stretched to side frame. Both of the side stretchers are secured to the reinforcing blocks by 6" bolts, making an extraordinary strong bridge work. The sides are attached to the head blocks formed by the corner legs and secured thereto by 3/4" hardwood dowels reinforced by one 8" frame bolt countersunk in 2 1/4" blocks glued to the side fences. The table is built in sections and can be taken part for K. D. shipment. Legs are 7 1/2" square, tongued and grooved compound construction, reinforced by corner blocks, double cross veneered inside and out and rigidly built into end framework of body. The wood construction is all of the very best quality, cabinet made, and put together in a most thorough manner. All joints made close and secure and all mitres absolutely accurate. Joints are tongued and grooved, strongly doweled and glued, or screwed firmly together. All corners and edges made perfectly smooth and true.
