    pip creamon box for horse

    Hey all. This is a box i'm building for my brother and SIL. belive it or not it is for there horses ashes.They had her for over 20 years and just couldn't just drag her into the back pasture like my grand father use to do,so they had her creamoned. When they had her creamoned they wanted 250 dollars for a cheap pine box.Well Roger (brother) said he would build one him self.To make a long story shorter he dont have the tools to make it the way he wanted.So a coumple weeks ago he called me and asked if i would make one.THis is what i'm building he said to do what ever i wanted.It is the first time chip carving but i really wanted to do some thing special,as i've never built any thing for them.I know my carving needs a lot more pratice but i'm shore they should like it.Will post finished photos when finished if any instrist.

    Might be the finest RIP box for a horse ever.

    Your brother and SIL should be well pleased. How do you plan to finish it?

    Looks like a lot of care went into the build, I'm sure it will be appreciated very much.
