My condolences on your losses. I did not see any direct links to cremation urns, but if you google urns, there are unlimited ideas. Marc “The Wood Whisperer” Spagnuolo made a very nice memorial box for his uncle’s cremains. He does not give dimensions, but the video is inspiring. He also has a Humidor in his Guild that might be used. If you can build a box, you can make an urn. If you turn with a lathe, that might be another option. I would use the nicest quilted maple or other figured wood I could find. Best wishes for you and your family.

Mimi and I send our prayers to you and your wife. I did find this, that has some dimensions- although the design may not be suitable

And this might help in determining the size-

I was also going to say Rocklet. Please accept my condolences my friend. It’s never a good time to lose a loved one.
