A very dear friend of mine paid me one of the greatest compliments by asking me to design and make an urn for her Mother that past away in December. I had never done anything like this before and was VERY nervous. I am so pleased with the way it turned out. The only instructions she gave me were use maple and oak. I found some curly maple and had some oak laying around. I also had some other wood that I thought was walnut that I used. But as I was working with it, I think it is something else. Not sure what – but love the way it turns! Her Mom loved calla lillies – so I tried my hand at the scroll saw by making one for the handle. After 4 attempts, I finally got one that worked. After I sealed it with wood turners finish sealer I did a few coats of a Linsead/wax compound (home made). It sure brought out all of the colors
-- I turn wood into 'things' ..... what is your superpower?
