    First Urn

    My first urn. It is for my Daughter's cat ashes, her request. My wife saw it and now wants one for our first dog we had. His ashes have been in a coffee can for 30+ years!
    This one is around 3" square. Mahogany with a cherry stain and then waxed with Dr. Workshop wax rubbed on and then buffed.

    Very nice Paul I've got to make one for my German Shepards ashes. It's been about 3 years. Your design looks great. I'll copy it if you don't mind.

    Certainly, copy away, but I must confess, you said my design, that imply I knew what it was going to look like when I started, but I rarely do when I start something, I just play it as I go. That is probably why my scrap wood pile is so big!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone.
