Hi,
I made this urn for a friend. He decided to scatter his son’s ashes in areas that he loved to visit and hike instead. Made with cherry and walnut.
Thanks for looking.

Thank you Candy and Jeff. Losing a child no matter how old they are can be pretty devastating. They go on to the other side and we have to create a closer.

Very nice build. I like the proportions and overall vertical build nature. I was asked to make one for my sister in law’s ashes earlier this year (also went vertical design).

Beautiful Urn !
The design is very unique and the wood colours and grain are totally appropriate for this piece .
This is an object that I have never been ask to make and I think I would get very emotional building one .
