Tables Illusion

Both table tops in the picture above are the same size.
Here's the proof.

I was curious whether the video aspect ratio isn't the acual culprit, so I opened the image in a photo editing software and compared the two tables as shown. And sure enough, they are different: the one that appears smaller is actually larger than the one that appears larger (i.e. the table to the right is about 10% longer than the one on the left). Go figure.

I obtained the same result as Gutza, just by laying a ruler on the screen.

There is a "tables illusion" where they are the same; this one may be bogus.
