This is a Dual purpose project. For people that want a cremation urn but don’t necessarily want everyone that comes into their home to recognize it as an urn. This actually came by mistake as I was turning the Base of the lamp I was not intending to make a lamp but a regular urn using laminated pieces of scrap poplar that has built up from building caskets. I didn’t have a plan in mind and just chucked it on the lathe and started playing with it. When I was finished I was about to scrap it in the burn pile when my wife said “It looks like lamp base.” So a light bulb went off in my head and I built it into a table lamp. I took it to one of the funeral homes that we sell caskets and Urns to to get their opinion and they loved it and ordered more, and then called their funeral home friends and now it looks like were now in the Lamp business too. Funny how a mistake can lead to a new product.
