This is another urn I was asked to make for my friends dog. It is curly maple with walnut x spines in the corners.
The lid has an unfinished area for gluing after it is loaded with the ashes.

The last three shots are of the splining operation

It is 6” x6” x 7” high and finished with satin lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Nicely done Jim, and the “x spines” are unique feature.

Very nice Jim…...I believe that when the people show such loving respect for their Pets, the world is still a good place.
The X Splines are very effective. They look great.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
