Well it’s been over 2 years since I’ve posted any new projects here on ‘Jocks, and that is WAY too long.
I spend a good part of 2014 and 2015 building and setting up my new woodworking shop. I’m happy to say it is up and running the way I want it, but of course like anything, there is still more to do.
A lot of my time has been spent restoring tools, building cabinets, shelves and drawers, organizing, and otherwise just putzing in the shop. BUT, I have been doing some woodworking as well.
I’ll start posting a few projects now, as time allows, to try to catch up a bit.
Here is a project I completed last July. I was asked to build an urn for a friend of my parents. The gentleman’s wife had passed away, and he wanted an urn to hold her remains as well as room for his family to place his once he passed. The design was very much left up to me. Here is the result.
The top and bottom are torrified curly sugar maple, and the sides are regular maple. The bottom unscrews to add the remains.
Thanks for looking and commenting!!
