Adding Table Leaves on Shabbat

Question:
According to Maran Shlita is one permitted to add leaves to a table on shabbat? Can we compare the addition of table leaves to the same case in the gemara (shabbat 47a) of the plasterer’s brush?

Many thanks
Answer:

Yes, it may be added. This is more similar to the plasterer’s brush than to the traveler’s bed which is prohibited. Here as with the brush this is part of the use of the table, to make it bigger and smaller. The bed was taken apart and put out of use for mobility and then rebuilt.
