    I have bought a old Vono card table in excellent condition and want to replace the baize (which I will be buying from you.) I am unclear if i can remove the central piece from the sides to take the baize down the edges or whether I just cut off the old baize and glue to the edges. Any thought would be much appreciated.

    • Hi Steve,

      I suggest removing the central fabric-covered panel, then you can take off the old baize and replace it with new. If you need any more guidance, please give us a call on 01380 829922 after you’ve placed your order for the replacement baize, and we’d be happy to discuss it further.

        The exposed surface is 74cm square and the sides are 5cm so I’m looking at a piece 84cm (33″) square.
        So your 86 square baize would be ideal?

      • Hi Steve, the 86cm square should be ample. You’ll probably find that the fabric covered central panel is quite shallow (a centimetre or so), so you’ll actually end up with a few centimetres of fabric to attach to the underside. Plus we normally cut the squares slightly larger than advertised so that you have a bit extra there too.

    • Hi Samantha,

      Our baize would be the right choice for your two antique writing desks. Traditionally made in England, it ensures authenticity in restoration projects. Click here to browse our range of baizes. We’re happy to give advice regarding glues and methods to any customer – please contact us after you’ve placed your order and ask to speak to Simon. Finally, we only sell traditional baize and not any that is self-adhesive.
