Ordering new felt

Once you've determined the inside dimensions of the table you can order standard cut felt sizes from on-line or local suppliers. For instance, if the measurement is close to 39 x 78 inches, order pool felt for a seven-foot table. The felt will come cut to 48 inches by 90 inches to allow for the overlap you need to secure the felt. Tables are often custom built, so a seven-foot table may be 39 x 78, 37 x 77 or 40 x 79. All would use a standard seven-foot table felt. To order, simply measure the table and take the measurements with you to order.
