    Maple & Walnut Urn

    Made this taper-sided box as an ashes urn for my cousin's cat. Cat's name was Star, hence the star inlay in the lid. The box itself is half inch thick spalted maple, and the lid is walnut with a poplar star inlaid. The box's sides are mitered, and taper at 10°. Size is about 6" squate, and 7" high.

    Beautiful urn Jim! The taper to the sides looks great.

    Looks great! I like the spalted maple sides, and the star on the pyramidal lid is the cherry on a cake. Well done!
    Best regards,
    Toni
