Price Changes from Olhausen Billiards

Updated: Mar 23


Some of the most beautiful tables in the world are produced in Portland, TN at Olhausen Billiards & Mfg. Co., Inc. American manufacturers face huge challenges producing products in an often tough regulatory environment. Compared to the relative environmental freedom overseas (US manufacturers are required to take care of our environment, pay people well, and still produce a product that competes with pool & shuffleboard tables produced overseas), Olhausen has done a great job.


There are some challenges, however, that are industry-wide and Olhausen has had to face them head on. It has become more difficult to procure furniture grade wood and other supplies in the face of shortages in the industry caused by Covid-related labor issues. So, and I hope this is reversible, although when are price increases ever reversible, Olhausen has announced an across the board increase of 20% on all table orders placed after April 5th, 2021. Olhausen has also announced that they will no longer produce the following tables:


Anaheim

Caldwell

Coronado

Dona Marie

Drake II

Franklin

Lafayette

Monterey

Montrachet

New Orleans

Provincial

Stratford

Virginian

Bantam Quad


Honestly, the company has needed to cull its line of tables for quite some time, but it's a shame about the Dona Marie! It's a beautiful table!


Olhausen will increase the price of a few tables more than 20%. Those tables are:


Blackhawk: 8' current price: $4,448 8' Price after increase: $4,942

Tustin: 8' current price: $6,620 8' Price after increase: $7,612

Laguna: 8' current price: $6,510 8' Price after increase: $7,492

Venetian: 8' current price: $7,662 8' Price after increase: $9,358

St. George: 8' current price: $9,548 8' Price after increase: $11,432

Symphony: 8' current price: $9,660 8' Price after increase: $11,556

St. Andrews: 8' current price: $9,660 8' Price after increase: $11,556

St. Charles: 8' current price: $9,660 8' Price after increase: $11,556

Louis XIV: 8' current price: $9,880 8' Price after increase: $11,798

Cavalier II: 8' current price: $10,230 8' Price after increase:12,184

Excaliber: 8' current price: $10,450 8' Price after increase: $12,426

Rococo: 8' current price: $11,542 8' Price after increase: $13,626

St. Leone: 8' current price: $14,444 8' Price after increase: $16,818

Encore: 8' current price: $6,674 8' Price after increase: $9,268


Obviously, these tables are not the everyday, family-budget-friendly pool tables, so to give you an idea of what that price change will look like, our best-selling table is the Olhausen Americana and this is the following change:


8' Americana current price w Cavalier (wide) rails: $3,540 New Price: $3,995


Brunswick prices increased at the beginning of this year, but Brunswick does not put it's best cushion on its entry-level tables, so in comparing the two, it is not comparing apples to apples to compare entry-level tables. In order to get the best cushion that Brunswick makes, you must order the Glenwood and Brunswick Glenwood tables start at $4,250.


All the prices I've quoted include delivery in Western Montana, Professional Set-up, Championship 4066 Teflon cloth, and a basic Accessory Kit. You can read about the upgrades to both the cloth and the accessory kits on another blog post.


If you are considering purchasing a shuffleboard table from Olhausen, the same increase in price will apply. All-in-all, though there is little time to get your order in, I would recommend purchasing now, even if you are going to install the table at Christmas!
