A unity urn is an urn designed for two people. It has a divider inside to partition off according to needed size for the cremains. The bottom is screwed on. Made of maple, quilted maple, paduak, ebony and thuya burl.

Dimension are approx. 10” wide x 13” long by 6” high.

About the inlay: The Thuya burl was cut book matched. If you look in the top center, you can see the outline of a heart, and perhaps some arms and hand holding it up. Very interesting!

The decal: The client sent me a picture of a crest he wanted, and I drew it up in Adobe Illustrator. I tweaked it in Photoshop and then printed it on a clear waterslide decal.

Finished in shellac and semi gloss poly.

-- Have a blessed day!

Very well done. Is the size of the Urn made to go inside a vault?

Well, this is interesting – the funeral company in which this urn was brought to recently is supposedly going to call me, to I suppose, order some? I’ll keep you posted…
