This urn is 14 inches tall and 6 inches at the girth. The body of the turning is aspen. Always choose standing dead aspen as green aspen has no color or character. The rim and lid are brazilian cherry. The handle for the lid is a mule deer antler mounted and then returned for the accent. The base is hollowed 2 inches up inside. This gives the piece a little more mass with a little less volume inside. It also allows me to retain the same wall thickness throughout the turning. Equal wall thickness means no checks or cracks in the future.
