Creative idea. And yeah, I see the ripples around the centre pocket too. ;) Looks like the surface isn't as flat as it should be - it would be a pain trying to get a shot in there... lol

I was just going to browse for 10 seconds before getting back to work but I actually felt guilty leaving this one without voting. Like occ said, many levels to this. Excellent!

Well Stu....after being a member for like a YEAR, I can finally vote. And you get the honour of being my very FIRST vote ever. Not only because I had this idea and couldnt do it, but because you did it 8 billion times better than I ever could have.

I really like the pool/pool idea and how instead of turning the pool completely into a pool table you used elements of each and combined them. Specifically, adding his reflection to the water. I would be curious to see how shaping the 8-ball into a floating beach ball would look. It would provide another element of the swimming pool aspect but would require making the near corner watery again, which would nullify the cool 'felt' effect that you have going on now. An artistic trade-off I suppose. (...and after 20 minutes of admiring and commenting he finally hits 'submit')

The 8ball is perfect, I don't think a beechball would have added the right touches.. Everyone thinks of the 8ball when they think of Pool. I just think you should make it look wet since it's being played in water.

The trouble with outdoor pool is that it sometimes gets a bit flooded ;) By the way, the felt edges are still the original cement with just a hue/saturation change.

I hates it when the felt top ripples........ makes for lousy bank shots, and poor "english"

Wow, thanks a lot for these votes and comments! BROOKS, I'm honoured ;). Beefhead, I had a dilemma about how water/land-based to make this. I thought about going with inflatable pool balls and various other related ideas, but decided to stick with this on
