California House Model Comparison

Shuffleboard Table Comparison · California House VS McClure Tables

California House is a recreation-game table and bar stool manufacturer located in California. They use high-tech equipment like CNC machines (computer numeric control) and have some nice designs for their game tables. There is a key difference between McClure Tables and California House and it centers at the heart of any shuffleboard table, the playboard. California House uses Beech Wood or Poplar for their playboards, most likely because it would be very costly to ship hard maple wood from Michigan or Pennsylvania to the west coast. They also use Alder Poplar and other soft-woods on their cabinets, not hard maple like we do.

At McClure Tables, we build and sell direct-to-consumer with no middlemen or distributors. We only use the best materials in every price range. Whether you buy a table for our entry level price of $3,295 or spend up to $28,000, the cabinet, legs, and playboard are all still made from locally harvested Hard Maple.

For comparison purposes, we’ll compare features on three McClure Models in the same price range as some California House Models.

McClure Tables are handcrafted in Michigan we do not cut any corners our prices are lower across our line rather you are looking at our in stock models, wholesale direct or custom made. The difference is simply no middle man mark up. If you are trying to compare apples to apples ask a local dealer if they can have a shuffleboard table custom made in a premium hardwood like Hard Rock Maple, American Cherry, Black walnut or even exotic wood like Sapele or Mahogany. Some factory made shuffleboard manufactures can offer these options but you will pay thousands extra for what is standard with our custom line of tables. Why not buy handcrafted rather than factory produced products like California House Shuffleboard Tables.
