I like it. Nice finish, good proportions and attractive tapers on the legs. I like the idea of the drawer/s. I’m sure your son will enjoy it.

That table is beautiful. Shaker furniture is timeless.
How do the leaves stand up? It looks like the piece underneath slides out, am I right? I’m interested because I’ll be building a Shaker sewing table sometime next year.

There is a portion of the skirt that pivots on a dowel. It has to be a little off center due to the drawer but it works fine.

Finally took some photos of the leaf support mechanism. They may not be the best photos but I tired.
