Needs more nails! Seriously, what can one expect from a 9-year-old? You had to start somewhere!

Hey, just think that is the neatest thing I’ve seen in a long time. I wish I had some of the stuff I made a s a kid. Over the years of moving, all of my childhood things are long gone. This should be the most valuable piece you own. Keep it forever and pass it down.

You must have come from a wealthy family to have made a table when I was 9 (in 1961) that amount of wood would have kept us warm alll winter. Seriously though it’s great when you can look back & remember your first faltering steps, you have definitely improved, bet you’re grateful to that table. Thanks for sharing your trip down memory lane.
God bless
