Mom passed away this week. What made it more interesting was that she picked a day when a windstorm had gusts over 70 mph and knocked out power to over 100,000 people for 3 days. Just like I did for dad, I wanted to make the urn for her ashes but I had no electricity. One of our fellow LJ’s cheerfully offered up his services but if the power came back on in time I wanted to do this myself if at all possible. Funeral is tomorrow, power came on last night. I did this in one day. I had some ideas I really wanted to try, box joints, some CNC carving, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out. This two tone box was the best I could come up with in one shop session. Maple box with a walnut base and panel. Simple dado corner joints. Mom was always very proud of my woodworking. It was one of the few things where she had those mom goggles where it seemed I could do no wrong. I hope she is in heaven holding hands with dad and they are proud of the last thing I could make for them.
