What is a draw leaf dining table?

What is a draw leaf dining table?
A draw-leaf dining table means that the table’s leaves are stored under the main tabletop. The top of the table is lifted slightly on its frame and the leaves pulled out on each end. Relatedly, a drop-leaf table is a table with a fixed center section, but on either side of that, there are hinged leaves that can be raised or lowered according to your specific needs. The purpose of a drop-leaf table is to save space when the table is not in use. Drop-leaf tables can also be used as nightstands, side tables, coffee tables, and desks.
