Defiance Boards - Final Resting Place in the O'Brien's Kitchen - Part 3

The O'Brien's have finally received their table. The wood used is steeped in history - from contraband hidden in the late 1700's, to bathroom floor boards, and ultimately in to a beautiful dining table. It has been quite a journey! It took many hours to plan the board layout, create the rustic look that Sean and Nicole wanted, and bring out the beauty and lustre of the wood. They desired a table that looked as though it had always been a part of their home and I believe their smiles show we did just that! Finn and Kiera are already arguing over who will inherit the table! So far, it seems there will have to be some sort of shared custody...
