I made this urn for my parents on the scroll saw. The wood burn is two hummingbirds drinking off eight flowers which represent their eight children.

Great looking Urn, and what a great idea to mix their ashes together.

Can you explain how you made this on a scroll saw. I would use a lathe.

Hi John,
My mother passed away last year and her final wish was that when my dad passed on we kids will mix their ashes together, they meet when they were 17 and were married for 64 years.
I got the idea on how to do this by watching this video by Charles Dearing.

Kelli, welcome to Lumberland. Thanks for sharing this. It is a nice shape and neatly pyrographed. The sentiment and symbolism are a tender touch.

Do you need to coat the inside so the acidity of the ashes will not damage it over time? Perhaps you plan to include a bag of some sort. Hope to see more of your work.
