I was asked to make an urn to hold my son-in-law’s ashes. A contemporary, yet simple, design was requested and here is what I have made. Walnut, cherry, and spalted maple. 12×8.5×8 inches.

Sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful tribute! A project with such meaning is a tough one, and you did it up well. Beautiful lumber for the medallion and I think the handles were a good choice.
