A month or so ago, we had to put down our 13 year old Golden named Timber. We ended up cremating him and needed a proper place for his ashes. The cookie jar with paws we got his ashes back was just not going to cut it so I made this Shaker Box to hold them. It is a number 4 box, made with home made quarter sawn hard maple I had leftover from a dining room table project I’m working on. The box material was sawn off 12/4 stick and then run through my buddy’s thickness sander. I then soaked the parts in boiling water in a wallpaper tray for about 1/2 hour and then bent. The top and bottom is also quarter sawn maple from the same board. I used Tried and True traditional wood finish to finish the outside of the box and left the inside unfinished.
This was the first time making this kind of thing and it actually was pretty easy and fun to do.
