First off, Thank you all for your positive comments and support. The Urns started with the passing of my brother in law and my nieces cat a few years ago. I had just started to start woodworking as a hobby. A friend gave me a small shed of rough oak boards to play with. He passed away shortly afterwords.The family asked if I could supply an Urn for the deceased.
After this, I built a few projects and had wood left over and started using the scraps to make Urns for a Pet crematorium in town. Surprisingly, after a year non sold. I gave them to friends and charity auctions. Soon I started to get requests from friends for larger Urns for loved ones. After 12 Urns, I just kept using scraps from projects for Urns.
I just finished the two big ones for my wife and myself.
Interesting enough, I have four left and have never sold one yet. I either have to get less friends or a better marketing attitude (LOL).
I enjoy woodworking and improving my skills and the honesty of friends and family help to work at improving your abilities.
