Measuring Your Table

  Before proceeding, look underneath your table, the manufacturer name or table
  model number maybe stamped there or if you have the original sales receipt for
  your table set the information should be listed on there also. Your table could be
  one of thousands of table patterns we have on file or can obtain from the
  manufacturer, you do not need to provide a table template.

   Please write the table manufacturer name and number either on the order form
   downloaded, received in your DIY kit or on a separate sheet of  paper. You will
   also need the exact width and length dimensions of the table's flat surface. You
   may refer to the diagram to the below on how to measure your table. This
   information will help us to verify the table pattern sizes with your actual table
   and to customize the table pad to fit your particular table.

 Tables come in many shapes and sizes. Before you start measuring your table,
   you must identify the "flat surface measurement" of your table top. Table pads
   should rest on the flat surface of the table. If they extend over the unsupported
   beveled edge they will break down with use.
