At a recent funeral of a family friend, my mother, who is 82, remarked what a wonderful urn the friend’s cremains were in. It was a brass box type. She remarked to another family member, in a low voice, “That’s a nice urn….I just got a cardboard box for me!” and gave a little chuckle.
I was mortified.
My mother being buried in a cardboard urn when her time comes? No sir.
I quickly go to work, and this project was the result.
Birdseye Maple, Quilted Maple, Paduak and African Blackwood. Finished in 2 coats of clear shellac, and 4 coats of Briwax.
