These are sold commercially and can be found on the internet.
The table is measured from rail to rail, the playing surface. The regulation pool table sizes will measure 100 inches by 50 inches (9 foot table) or 88 inches by 44 inches (8 foot table) or 92 inches by 46 inches (oversize 8 foot table).

This third item is the reason all regulation pool tables are required to have one inch slate.
