This is a commissioned piece. My client wanted an urn for her dog made from dark wood and something lighter for contrast. I was originally going to do a solid maple feature ring but my piece of walnut that was thick enough for the urn had a pretty big defect that I had to cut out so I “stretched” the walnut with maple segments. The defect basically determined where the ring went but I would still be interested in what you all think of the proportions. The name plate medallion on the bottom is the waste from the top of the top so the grain matches perfectly. I’m sure that I’m the only one who would ever notice but it’s kinda fun to geek it out a little. Also, I did not do the name and date carving. I paid a guy with a lazer to do it.
