    Urn - Done

    More an effort to show off Pete Simmons' laser work than the urn. The parts are all just sort of roughed out and dry fit (with some masking tape no less).

    Many thanks to Pete for the laser work. I should finish this up before next weekend so I'll post some completion pics later.

    I am doing a similar urn for a client. In researching, I discovered some people are squeamish about ashes, so sometimes a neighbor turns the urns on their mantle with the names to the rear. Lesson to me... be sure that the back side is both plain and pretty.

    Very nice. Thanks for the credit but I did 0.000001% of the effort.

    Glenn, You made the beautiful item!

    Umm, I assume you mean the urn, not the contents to go in it.
