Great little table, especially considering the materials!

That is a nice table. Since we had the 2×4 contest I have somewhat lost my amazement at what can be created from a simple 2×4. I will never look at construction lumber the same anymore. For less than $10 you have a really nice end table. I am sure your grandfather appreciated it.

Did you tell him what it actually cost? It really isn’t important. It is a gift from the heart and built with your two hands. In a word- priceless.

Now that is some thrifty Christmas shopping – but like Scott said – priceless.
