I am going to try selling these thru vets offices in my area. The first is an oak box for a med. to med large dog. the second is cedar for a me. sized dog or large cat. I also made a small yorkie class box from ash. No pix, but I also built 2 Urns. one from Cherry, and one from quarter sawn oak and walnut. sold the one from cherry for a cats ashes.

When our McKeever pass away a couple of years ago, we had him cremated. Part of the service was a cherry box for his remains. Between your vet and the crematory they use, you should be able to do well.

It’s a service we hate to think about having to use but we also know it is inevitable.

Very nice work. It may end up being a demanding second career for you! Many people have deeper feelings for their pets than for their spouses. :-(

What a great way to honor a man’s ( or woman’s) best friend.

Please let us know how the reception is at the local vet offices. I am interested to know how well they sell.

I am setting up a shop and want to build pet caskets. Check with the local funeral home as well lots of people go there looking for casket to put pet in and is where I first got the thought.

Have your say...
