I was asked by my aunt to make a urn for my Uncle Tom. I love this web site, I looked at many others on hereand came up with this. I used all walnut with a hidden latch, to keep little ones out. Thanks Fuzzy2.

Very nice Fuzzy. I’m sure your aunt loves it and your uncle would be proud. Could you please share more details on the hidden latch?

I have been asked about the hidden latch. I found the ideal on the web, there are two pieces of .030 alum. that have a 90 deg. bend so they chatch on each other. one attached to the lid the other attached to the Urn. Then I drilled a small hole in each side of the Urn, so with a small rod inserted in I can push the lid side alum. back just enough to allow them to pass each other and open. I hid the small rod in the top of the cross, as seen in one of the pictures.
Thank you ALL for all the nice words about the Urn and my Uncle Tom.Fuzzy2
