Hi Everyone
My Wife’s cousin in NC had a cat ( Toby) that they have had for a number of years. As many of you know a pet is part of the family and we all mourn their passing. I was asked to create a small box for Toby’s ashes. The Walnut box is 3” x 4” by 2.5 ” deep with a removable back. The intarsia was done with Mahogany and bloodwood (background). Toby was made with shades of gray ambrosia maple with Lignum Vitae and ebony eyes. The dime shows the scale.

Very nicely built box for Toby. It was surely very sad moment to be apart off for both.
