You might want to go the this web site. They have a lot of information regarding dining room tables, including measurements, layout, etc

I am now starting the same project for my Daughter

I have bought a couple sets from the Great working order and no complaints from the owners. I know there is an opening lenght on the wooden ones but they have light weight metal ones that I know of and a fellow woodworker has used them on several tables he builds. he builds tables with 2 and 3 pedestals and 20 feet long. Good luck.
