? Really? Just the fact that he's young. I thought that would be obvious.

I'd be afraid to set my drink on that table for fear I might lose it in the abyss. Good job, kid!

It's generally impressive when young people achieve things on par with adults, because they've had less time to practice being awesome.

That table is, in fact, extremely awesome. I want one too!

It's a cool table, no doubt, and took a lot of work to do right. The design, however, has been around for over 50 years. There are how-to instructions and ready made ones (that one is really cool) all over the web. Unless the award was for execution/fit/finish, I don't get it.

Yeah, it's cool, but not original by a long shot. Builds of these show up on reddit about twice a week.

Yeah. There was a bar I used to go to that had tables like that, and also the dance-floor!

That was pretty cool.
