  • Table Leaves: The standard size for table leaves is 12" width however some tables may differ. How large is your leaf opening?
  • This measurement is normally 2" longer than the number of table leaves your table accepts.
  • For example: a table with a 26" opening will take 2 standard 12" table leaves.
  • The extra 2" provides maneuverability when putting in or taking leaves out.


  • Additional Support:
  • Use table slides which have larger than need openings. Greater overlap of table slide sections provides more support when the table is extended.
  • A drop down center leg can be added to tables with large leaf openings adding more support.
