Cremation Urns

One of my closest friends passed away recently after a long illness. His wife told me of his final wishes to be cremated. I told her I would be honored if she would let me make the urns for him (and her when she finally passes many years from now).

A difficult project to execute because of the emotion but a satisfying one because of who my friend was and how much he meant to me.

Canary wood and Tung Oil.

Your friend should rest a bit easier in that lovely box.

A lovely pair of boxes, and definately understand the difficulty and emotion.. a couple of years ago my very good friend and co-worker passed unexepectedly of a massive heart attack. His spouse brought me a box full of photos from his childhood to present time and asked me if I could make a musical slideshow for the funeral service on the big screen in the church. I was also the wedding photographer for their daughter’s wedding, a year or so prior to his passing.
