It has two similar legs, one on each end, which are attached to a piece of wood (which is in turn attached to the table top frame), which moves out to support the leaves. There are casters on the bottom of all six legs. The block turning at the top of each leg creates the edges of the frame of the table top. The frame consists of four pieces of wood. A rectangular table top is secured onto the frame. Two 15" wide leaves are attached to the table top with hinges.
