My friend asked me to make an Urn for her father who is dying from cancer. He is in stage four of some really agressive type (not sure about details beyond that). The doctors give him between 1 and 3 weeks. Sad way to get a commission for such a cool project.
Asked her permission to make a video of the making it and she was excited to have such a history for the oiece recorded. You can see it made here

-- 25 years, 3 working lathes and I'm still figuring it out.

You did an extraordinary job on this. I love it. I’m sorry for her coming loss but I’m sure that she will be pleased with it.
