Our Precut Baize Squares are the perfect replacement baize for card tables. Here’s why you should use them for restoring your old playing card table.

With the environment being at the forefront of many people’s minds, the idea of restoring old furniture is resurgent. Not only is it better for the planet, antique or older pieces of furniture just have more soul. Those scratches and chinks in the wood tell tale.

So if the felt – or what looks like felt – on the top of your antique playing card table is a little worse for wear, then our Precut Baize Squares are just what you need.

Buy The Best Baize for the Job

Simply put, there is no substitute for quality baize. When choosing replacement baize for card tables, choosing quality over cost is key.

The baize we stock as precut squares are all premium quality British made baize. Manufactured to a heritage grade standard. This means that the fabric goes through a rigourous quality control process. The end result is a baize that has an extremely tight weave, made from 95% wool and will be highly resistant to “pilling” – the bobbling up you often see on cheaper fabrics.

Recovering your playing card table with a premium quality baize, means that you’ll unlikely need to do it again any time soon and your restored table will look good for years to come, as well as providing you a highly durable playing surface that will be a joy to sit at.

More Colours More Sizes

Our precut squares are available in the eight colours of the standard range baizes we stock. However we offer a baize fabric cutting service, which covers all of the baizes we stock. This means if you want to give your old table a colourful twist, then we can expertly cut a piece of cloth to suit your style.

Use this service too if your card table is a non-standard size. We can cut the baize to millimetre accuracy at no extra cost.

Which Size Do You Need?

For Standard Sized Card Tables

Our precut baize squares are available for the two most common card table sizes, either 86.4cm/34 inches or 91.4cm/36 inches. We also offer the most popular and vibrant colours from our Extra Wide Baize as 100cm /39 inch squares, so you have a wonderful array of colours to choose from in addition to the traditional green.

Get Colourful!

Due to popular demand, we now offer a range of more colourful precut squares of baize measuring 100cm/39 inches. We’ll be expanding the range of colours available, so be sure to keep checking back. These colours are perfect for smaller interior design projects, such as statement cushion covers, or for table decorations such as runners or placemats.

If you’ve seen a colour of baize on our site and want to know if it will be available precut, then please leave a comment below or contact us.

For Custom Sized Card Tables

If your table is bigger than the sizes above, we’ll cut a piece to your specified dimensions. Customers tend to choose the standard baizes we stock for covering their card tables.

Adhesives for Baize

For attaching baize to tables we stock double-sided tape. This is used primarily as a first stage fixing, for positioning and tensioning, before the application of a more permanent glue.

      Our standard range is the one we recommend for card tables. It’s very durable and hardwearing, and will last for many years. We sell pre-cut squares for recovering card tables, in 5 different colours (cedar green, holly green, burgundy, blue and black) and 2 different sizes (34 inches/86cm, and 36 inches/91cm). The prices are as follows:

      34 inch square £39.95
      36 inch square £44.95

      34 inches is usually sufficient for most tables. Here is a link to the product online:

      If your table is larger than standard and you need a bigger piece, we do offer a cut-to-size service. This service is ideal for people wanting small pieces as it saves them from buying a whole metre. But for a piece larger than the precut squares above, it would be cheaper for you to buy a metre off the roll than have a piece cut to size. A metre off the roll is £77.95 and you have a choice of 7 colours:

    I need two pieces, my two table tops are both 4ft by 4ft , to be used for wargaming , i need to be able to have enough over to be tacked underneath not glued , how much please , thanks , wayne.

    1. Baize and Wool Team

      Thanks for your enquiry. 4ft is an awkward size – you can only get one piece out of a width of our standard baize (it’s 190cm wide). I recommend you have at least 3cm all round to wrap over and fix underneath, so you’d need 2.6m of our standard baize altogether. Alternatively, you could have a look through our selection of remnants and see if there’s anything suitable there.

    I need to glue the baize to the top of my card table, which is wooden. Which glue should I use and are there any tips for getting the best result?

    Our card table needs recovering, but also new wood to be covered. What wood would work best with your baize?

    1. Baize and Wool Team

      Hi Mike, our baize is suitable for covering any wood, but for the board in a card table we’d recommend MDF. It’s stable and doesn’t warp, giving you a good solid playing surface. Go for the thickest piece you can for the space you have available in the recess of the frame (5mm minimum if possible). We offer our standard baizes and extra wide baizes as precut squares specifically for covering card tables, and there’s a wide range of colours to choose from.
