This box is for my Uncle’s remains, he passed away in January. Due to my 7 day a week work schedule I had very little time to work on it.

It is about 9.5 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 8 inches long. Got the walnut from Woodcraft. I will be dropping this off on Sunday March 12.

It is truly an honor to do this for my family.

Update——Box delivered today. Tears all around.
