Olhausen York Shuffleboard Table Review
Today we take a look at Olhausen Billiards best selling home shuffleboard table, the York. The Olhausen York Shuffleboard is featured in our Maryland showrooms if you want to "kick the tires" and see why this is such a popular model. Olhausen Billiards in Tennessee is the largest US based manufacturer of Pool Tables, Shuffleboard Tables, and other quality Made in the USA home entertainment goods.
Olhausen products are available through a trusted network of local established authorized factory retailers, like Robbies Billiards & Patio. The York is a transitional style shuffleboard table made in Tennessee with hundreds of custom options. Sizes range from 9' to 22' tournament length and recreational 16" wide to full 20" wide finger joined rock maple play surfaces. The cabinets can be custom made in a variety of wood species and finish stains, just like every custom made Olhausen game table. In Maryland Shuffleboard Tables tend to sell well in Maple Wood with a Dark Cherry, Mahogany, or Black Onyx finishes. The most popular size shuffleboard for homes in Maryland, Virginia, and DC is the 12' Length.
Style: The York Shuffleboard Table features a transitional solid leg with a square tapered cabinet similar to the style of the Olhausen York Pool Table. There is a subtle routing on the "blind" or side of the play surface cradle. The overall balance and style blend well with most traditional or even modern style game rooms. The popularity of the York Shuffleboard Table comes from its versatility in any home. It is not a trendy or old school design, rather it falls somewhere in between. Some customers are indifferent to the York style, but no one absolutely hates the look of this table making it a very good design chameleon.
Construction: Like all Olhausen Game Tables, the York Shuffleboard is custom made to order in Tennessee out of select hardwoods. The main component of any Shuffleboard Table is the play surface, and Olhausen knows their boards. With a virtually indestructible poured lacquer over finger joined Canadian Rock Maple, this play surface will last for decades in either 16" or full 20" tournament size. Olhausen has developed their own patented "leveling" system made up of wooden climatizers to adjust the play surface as room conditions change. Our experience is these boards are on par with the industry standard by Champion Shuffleboard. The real difference is in the cabinet: No one builds a better looking better quality cabinet than Olhausen. With the stain and wood options the York can be build just about any way you like. The kicker is that Olhausen is the only shuffleboard manufacturer in the industry with a full Lifetime Factory Warranty on the Play Surface AND the Cabinet. That is an unbeatable guarantee and sets the Olhausen York Shuffleboard apart from the competition.
Value: The York Shuffleboard table has so many custom size, wood, and finish options we have a tough time putting it in a specific price range. Even fully decked out, however, this table seldom exceeds $6,000 other than in tournament sizes. Combined with the customization options, bullet proof play surface, and lifetime warranty on all wood components (something no other manufacturer currently offers!) the York is a solid value however you speck it out. If you can live with the 16" wide recreational play surface option the York is priced competitively with many imported and off brand tables. That makes this Shuffleboard table a great Made in the USA alternative for any value seeking buyer.
