    Custom Intarsia Pet Urn

    I just finished this pet urn for a client in memory of "Bubz" the dog.
    The urn is made from antique mahogany and measures 8" x 8" x 4" and has a removable bottom cover.
    The Intarsia consists of 45 pieces from 9 different woods.

    The Subject photo of "Bubz" supplied by the client.

    As usual your work is my inspiration. That is beautiful. What a great comfort that will give the owners to lay the dogs ashes in that.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
    Although I try to make these type of projects fun, I know to the owner they have a different meaning.
