My dad died a few months ago. I made this urn for his ashes. It’s walnut with inlaid purpleheart (my first atttempt at inlaying). I’m pretty much a wannabe woodworker, but I think this turned out well, and I think my dad would have been proud of my effort. I made two tops, and used the one on the left. A couple coats of boiled linseed oil, and several coats of spar varnish (wiped on). I used two pieces of walnut for the lids, and shiplapped them together. Routed out a little dado for the purpleheart. Cut the purpleheart strip with a bandsaw. Made a pattern for the cross, and routed out the shape.
