It has been a little over a year since the sister-in-law passed away. I was asked to make an Urn for her ashes.
This is the project. I told the brother-in-law that I would not post it up until after his passing. We lost Matt after an extended illness eight weeks ago. I am finishing up Matt and Patty’s final tribute and will post it in the near future. The final tribute is why the urn is open now.

The urn is made from bubinga and cocobolo. The backing of the cross is ebony and it sits proud of the box with brass pins. The finish is several coats of spray lacquer.

I have been asked to make only one of these. Fortunately I did not know the man but did his children. He was delivered to my shop in a plastic box in a plastic wrapper which I discarded. I made his urn from Red Cedar trimmed with Dog Wood. Never did take a picture of it.
