For my brother,
Walnut legs, top border, and bottom are from trees in my sister’s yard in Warrenton, Virginia.
Maple panel in the top is from a tree in my yard that our dad started from a seed 30 plus years ago in our yard in Beltsville, Maryland
The Apple wood heart in the top is wood from a tree off the farm where my mom grew up in Mansfield, Georgia.
The box frame is maple and leopard wood.

A sad day, brings a beautiful box. You can certainly see that you put all your talent and skill in to the building of your brother cremation box. The sculptured legs adds a look of elegance to the contrasting woods. The heart on time shows the feelings the box shares. Truly a labor of love. Sorry for your loss. Thanks for inspiring
