Curious about the difference between standard table leaf extensions and stow leaf table extensions? The Reclaimed Wood Plank Farm Dining Table is a great example.
Comparing Standard and Stow Leaf Table Extensions
This video, shot in an Amish woodworking shop and featuring a couple of our woodworkers, should provide a good example. Though a simple setup, it clearly shows the convenience of the stow leaf extension system.
Stow Leaf System
Shown first, the stow leaf system displays a table leaf underneath the tabletop, tucked in. Then, an Amish woodworker pulls it out and lifts it into place as a table end extension. The solid wood leaf is durable and sturdy when it’s in use and conveniently hidden away when it’s not needed.
Standard Table Leaf
The standard table leaf is seen next. For this Reclaimed Wood Plank Farm Dining Table, extensions can only be added at the ends of the table. So, if you opt to go for the standard table leaf, that means it’s a little more complicated. This leaf is just as sturdy when it’s installed. However, when it’s removed, you’ll have to find a closet or storage space to hide it away because it doesn’t stow in the table.
