I was requested by a friend who lost his father-n-law shortly back if I could make a container to hold his ashes, I quickly replied that I’d be glad to, he wanted a price figure but since he’s always helped me with my bike (Harley)and other things I told him there would be no charge, I asked him particulars and if he wanted a cross on the top and he thought that’d be a nice touch, well after completion, I sent him pictures he showed them to his wife and she let him know that he was a Native American Indian, not a Christian and that the cross would not work, well he informed me of this, he was very apologetic insisting payment but I declined, I thought about deconstructing the lid but instead we all agreed to leave it as it was they would take the box several hundred miles distance to the family and see what they thought well needless to say the box came back to me we all decided that I would make another and put this one up for sale.
I am now in the process of making another only this time I’m using Native Texas Cedar Elm for the rustic look, the box will also be slightly altered so that the plastic container will stand straight up inside of the URN
The Box shown is a closed box the bottom base is held in place by screws it is made from Sipo with an maple cross inlay, I finished it with a single coat of tung oil, two coats of wipe on poly satin blend and a final coat of paste wax.
Thanks for viewing.
