In addition to custom-made dining room table pads, we produce custom pads for business tables, side tables, end tables, buffets, pianos, coffee tables, and even large pads for long conference tables. Contact us for more details.
Depending on table size, pads are produced in two or more sections. Hidden from view, Quick-Lock™ connectors keep pad sections securely locked together and eliminate sliding.
Protect your table with our custom made table pad top
One of the most important things you can do to preserve the finish of your dining or antique table through many years of use is to protect its surface from everyday hazards. Chemical coatings might help against some spills, but only custom table top padding can provide more complete protection, including protection from scratches and nicks and exposure to excessive heat.
Please read our customer reviews. Repeatedly, they confirm our much-advertised determination to provide the highest quality in protective table padding at affordable prices and to provide the best customer service in the industry. The sheer volume of their laudatory comments reveals that our claims are not just advertising noise. It's more simple than that. It is the truth. We produce only one level of quality: PREMIUM, the absolute best, quality table pads on the market. And we can proudly state, as well, that all of our suppliers are American companies whose materials are produced domestically.
Measuring your table top surface
Accuracy is important. For best results, please measure only the table flat surface (without the bevel) and do so to within 1/16 of an inch.
M.J. (OH) August 2016 Received my Table Pad today and it is just what I wanted. PERFECT!!!! And very very good service. Thank you!!!
D.F. (IN) July 2016 Don, thank you for working so closely with me on our custom order. The pads arrived in a matter of days and are perfect! We greatly appreciate the individualized attention and the exceptional quality and service. Thank you again. D.F.
P.N. (WI) June 2016 We just received our new table pads. They fit perfectly and we are very happy with them. I should have ordered the storage bags too. Can you give me a quote by looking at my order? Thank You.
B.R. (AZ) Nov. 2016: Don, Thanks so much. The pad arrived yesterday and looks fantastic.
W.J. (CA) Jan. 2017: Received our tabletop today and we are so happy with the quality and it will serve our family so well! Thank you. We will definitely recommend your company to our friends and family.
C.K. (CA) Feb. 2017: WOW! An extremely nice product! I am very impressed.
Fits well. Locks together fine. Arrived quicker than I expected AND Made in the USA. Who could ask for more?
L.D. (CO) Mar. 2017: Great table pads! Good Fit! Good price! Speedy delivery! Thanks!
G.H. (PA) March 2017: We are thrilled with our table pads! They fit perfectly and look wonderful! So great doing business with a "Made in USA" company. We will definitely recommend you to others.
K.G. (OH): Hello, I just received my table pad and love it! Apparently, I didn't check the quick lock box. Is there any way I can still get the locks?
P.P. (NY) March 2017: The table pads for 3 tables arrived – delayed one day by the snow storm, but of course that can't be helped. They are perfect! They fit perfectly and each pad clips magnetically and smoothly to the one next to it. Both my daughter and I are very pleased. In fact, now my middle daughter has decided that she needs a set as well, so I will be sending you the specifications soon! I have included a few photos. The small round table – called a pie crust table because of the edging – is shown without any pad and with the pad half folded and then fully extended. You will see that the pad reached the top of the "pie crust" edging so that with a small round cloth on it, the table will be perfect for tea or to hold dishes when our dining table is full. The dining table is shown with 2 of the 3 leaves in it and there is a close up of the rounded edge of the table. The very thin white line at the bottom of the pad is actually a slight reflection, but in fact, the pad reproduces perfectly the curvature of the table.
I know I will love using these pads for many years to come and if I can be of help in recommendations, please let me know. It would be my pleasure.
M.J. (MI): I ordered a table pad last month, which I love! When I ordered, I did not realize that I ordered it without the quick-locks (big mistake). My question to you is, do you have any suggestions on any aftermarket locking mechanisms to keep my pads from shifting?
R. S. (NY) May 2017: Thank you so much. We received the table pad. It's perfect!! It got here so quick. Excellent product and fantastic and service! R.S.
J.H-N (FL): Thank you for the wonderful table pad. I'm so glad we ordered through your company, the delivery was fast and great quality. Definitely, must have with small children.
E.F. (IL) July 2017: To whom it may concern: I wanted to thank you for the beautiful, custom-made table pad for our very small kitchen table. It arrived in excellent condition on Wednesday, July 12, just as promised. It fits perfectly and matches the wood in the kitchen. I am so pleased and will happily recommend your company to others--not only for the excellent product and workmanship (and speed of service) but also for the friendly, helpful personnel with whom I was in contact--specifically Don. Thank you again. E.F.
S.H. (NC): Hi Don, Just to let you know that I have received the table pad and leaf today and they are perfect. The corner fits exactly and I like how well made and the color that they are. Thanks again for your help.
V.DM. (NY): I just took my new table pads out of the box and I have to say that I am completely thrilled with the product. Also very impressed with your turn around time....I ordered the pads online, after regular business hours (very easy process), on the 18th of July and received them on the 26th! Of course, my order was for a fairly long rectangular table, no fancy corners or anything, but I'm still blown away that they got here so quickly. I will definitely recommend your company to any of my friends who may be in the market for your products.
K.C. (CA) Feb. 2018: Hi Don, I received the table pad. It is beautifully crafted and fits perfectly. Thank you so much!

Table Pad Construction
Our table pads are handcrafted by experienced people whose work is defined as much by their patience as by their skills. Our manufacturing history reaches back to the 1920's, and we have greatly improved our production processes over the years. For a better perspective on manufacturing processes, it is interesting to note that there are only four major manufacturers in the U.S. Most of them use animal glue in their production, which we do not. Some of them manufacture their products with the use of a single core board. Others build in two or three layers. Some – not all – manufacturers import composition materials from China. All make their pads by hand in the final stages of production. There is just no way around it. So worker skill is very important.
We distinguish ourselves from the pack by focusing on the retail customer. By doing so, our focus is on product quality rather than on trying to achieve economies of scale through mass production. Accordingly, we use the best materials available on the market with the aim of providing you with the best product for your hard-earned dollar. Our core board is a 7/16"-thick, light-density, smooth fiberboard. On the surface side, we laminate two layers of the insulation felt (the same as that used for roofing shingles and, in the auto industry, for noise reduction) to provide even more heat resistance. The finished pad has a total thickness of 5/8". This composition retains enough flexibility to allow the pads to lay very flat. The surface vinyl material is made in the USA by a New Jersey manufacturer. Their manufacturing process, as is true of ours, is fully compliant with the best environmentally-friendly standards and methods. The aforementioned velour, velvet-like underlining is manufactured by two companies based in Massachusetts.
In order to avoid the rigidness and odor of animal glues, we use only water-based adhesives specially produced for our needs by an Ohio-based manufacturer. The adhesive is very flexible and strong. As indicated, all ingredients meet or exceed the most rigorous environmental-friendly requirements. We ourselves do not want to be exposed to hazardous materials during the production process, and you can remain confident that our products will do the job of protecting your furniture without causing health problems to the users of our products.
We pack our products in a double-wall, cardboard carton with bubble wrapping to minimize the incidence of any damage in transportation. We never use loose-fill Styrofoam.

V.W. (PA): Hi folks, received the table pads yesterday. They are wonderful. Thanks for getting them here before Thanksgiving. Our table was made from an ash tree from our property so it has great sentimental value. Crafted by a Mennonite friend. Also sending photos. Thanks again, Vickie
E.W. (NY): I ordered custom table pads for my new expensive dining room table. They were reasonably priced (around 225) which I found nothing for a table valued over 1000 dollars. I placed my order online on a Sunday after following careful and well-detailed instructions on the site. Imagine my surprise when half an hour later I got a call (on a SUNDAY!) confirming my order and reviewing all measurements to make sure I made no errors when submitting. I paid an extra 20 dollars for expedited shipping and was given a delivery date about 3 weeks after I ordered. My table pads came today, several days early and they are amazing. The quality is great, and they are a PERFECT fit. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to protect a nice table.
D.M. (IL) May 2018: (Voice-mail): "Hi Don this is D.M.

M.S. (KY) July 2018: Dear Mr. Unger, My table pad has arrived. It is even nicer and more attractive than I had hoped that it would be—and I assure you that I had high hopes and expectations from reading all the positive things that your previous customers had to say about your work. The pad fits with remarkable precision and the vinyl pattern and color are so close to my actual table that I suspect that anyone visiting our house under everyday conditions would not even notice the pad. I am also impressed with how sturdy the pad seems to be. Your description makes it clear that the pad will be substantial, not flimsy. You describe it as being 5/8 an inch, and it is every bit of that. I just had not realized how substantial a pad of such thickness would be. It is impressive. The cloth bottom (is it felt?) is also of an obviously high quality in its look and feel. This material holds the pad in place with no evidence of sliding at all, which means that I can work with and on the pad without being concerned that it may slip around. I could go on with further words of praise and appreciation, but I'll stop telling you how great your handiwork is because it is evident that much thought and effort has gone into the creation of this pad.
My only regret is that I did not find you sooner and have you make a pad for my table before now. My table has suffered little from careful use over the years, but it is evident that with one of your pads it would not have even the tiny nicks that I have given it. I am truly delighted with this custom pad and now that I have it before me and have had a chance to handle it and to inspect it closely, I am more impressed than ever by the reasonable price of your product. Thank you very much. Sincerely, M.S.
