a close friend REALLY loved her cats….when they died over the years, she wanted something to hold their “cremains”.....the project “got away” from me and expanded into a life of it’s own…..design started out as a simple box to hold 4 cat urns….to this…...

That’s what I call getting carried away.
The velvet ribbons are a very nice touch.

I have to agree with Jim on this one; an alter for dead cats, very creepy.

The craftmanship though really is wonderful. You should be very proud of your work.

OK, OK, you’ve got our attention! Great build, even if it is outside the norm. Craftsmanship is craftsmanship, afterall.

It’s beautiful, albeit a little odd, but beautiful no less. The various religious symbols are a bit, well… juxtaposed, which I assume is the point, I don’t know…

That is very well done – and original I might add. I doubt that you found the plans in your woodworking magazine this month.

I think that I’ve read a few too many Stephen King novels to feel comfortable with that in my house, but I’m sure that your friend is very appreciative.

Seriously, that is a fine project. And welcome to LJs.
