This is a wooden urn I made for my mother. It took me about 3 weeks and 4 designs to perfect what I wanted / felt was perfect. It came to me one day when I was driving down the road, at that point I knew exactly what I wanted. It is by far my best project I have made yet – I still cannot believe I made this. Hope you like. Enjoy!

Really a lovely tribute Richard. I had this same job recently and I know what it takes from you and how it inspires you at the same time. You have done your Mom proud and I’m she she would be at the head of the line if she could to applaud the fine job you’ve done here.

My compliments on the work and my condolences for your loss.

We make pet urns where I work, but they don’t hold up to this fine piece. It is very nice and your mom would be proud.

Thank you, everyone. I really appreciate all of yopur kind words. My best project to date, which is fitting since it was for a special woman – my mother. :)
