NOTE: When not in use, place the leaves within the fabric lined compartment as follows. One leaf should be placed face down into the fabric lined compartment. The other leaf should be placed face up on top of the first leaf, so the felt pads on the bottom of the two leaves meet.
NOTE 2: It is important to NEVER carry, lift or move the table by the upper leaves as this may damage the table. Always hold the table by the base when moving.
