Draw-Leaf Table

Draw-leaf tables, or draw-tables, are a very clever form of extension table. The leaves are built into the table and pull, or draw, out from both ends. When extended, the weight of the top holds them in place. To store them, simply slide them back in. The entire mechanism is wooden and will last for generations.
