This urn is a commissioned project for a customer’s dog’s ashes. She wanted it to look like one she saw on ETSY but that one was not big enough and the turner could not make one big enough for her dog- it had to be at least 30 cu. in.This one will hold 2 1/2 cups or about 35 cu. in.

It is made from spalted beech with a walnut top ring and foot. The flame shaped plug was also a request. She wanted pronounced grain lines in the flame and the spalting was the best I could do!

It is finished with EEE, Shellawax, and 6 coats of clear matte spray.

I hope she likes it….........Jim

A really beautiful urn Jim, great use of the wood and I’m sure the lady won’t be complaining. Still wonder at how many hours in a day you have over there, you seem to use every minute of them.
