This almost the final step to finish this game table,
and it concerns the mat that you have to put of course.
There is only 2 colours allowed for the mat, one is well known and called « Empire green »,
the second is wine red or Bordeaux,
I usually remake a piece identical to the previous conditions, but this time
I thought wine red colour mat, would looks nice, so I went on with a wine red colour fabric,
you have to keep the table open like this, in a way that after the glue is dry and when you
will open the table fully, it will stretch properly the mat and make it fully flat
now you have to pull the fabric to stretch it that there is no pleat,
and and and ……
forget about it, it is already a failure.
My friend in France told me once:
« There is nothing worse than a game table with a pilling mat »,
well, just by stretching the fabric with my hands, it started pilling.
So I figured out on spot that I have to change the fabric.
Otherwise, it is well stretched with no pleats once the top is open,
