Replaced tabletop and table legs 21 ft

Several months ago I replaced the two table legs with a telescoping style pedestal.
Since then we decided the dinette area was not big enough for us to gals or the table top was too big to allow us ample getting in and out room, so I made a new smaller table top. I used a lighter weight "plywood" and milk paint with a hemp oil seal. We'll see how it holds up. Great size for us. Kept the old top in case this does not work out.

We also explored a smaller tabletop in our 2017 21' to increase the ease of us both getting in and out of the bench seats. We even made a mock-up out of heavy cardboard. Contacted ETI with the measurements, and they said they could make it for us with matching Formica and trim. But it would cost (in CAD) $175 for the custom table, $90 for the Formica (unless we could ship our extra back to them) and $100 shipping for a total of $365. In the end, we decided that we like the standard table just fine.

Telescopeing leg

Is it as sturdy as the original? Not crazy about the two leg system...... there has to be a better way.

It is very sturdy. I had it attached to the original top and it worked great.
