Made of quarter sawn bubinga throughout, it was the wishes of the young man’s parents (22 years old) to have an unadorned, dovetailed cube to hold his cremains. Box is made so that the lid is sealed airtight, but can be removed with a bit of trouble should the family need to access the ashes for any reason.

-- Cheers!

Very dignified and proper, Scott. I’m sure it would have been proper for Rodolfo when he lost his Mimi. Did you hand cut the dovetails?

Good job Scott.
