    Yes. The heaters are designed so they don't get so hot that they would cause a fire hazard. If they are electric make sure that cloth does not drape into the heater, just in case there should be an issue with the heating element. Hot water baseboard carries no such cautions. They cannot malfunction and get too hot.

    I agree with Twlocke77, as long as the hot air can move from under the table, it should be fine. Try to keep the legs away from the registers and nourish the wood the air will be going across so that it doesn't get to dry.
