Nephew passed suddenly in July,so I set out to build him an urn.His dad only wanted the Detroit “D” as my nephew was a Hugh fan of the Tigers.I had the D lasered in town,came out pretty nice.The other urn is for my brother-in-law who passed a few years ago.Sister-in-law only had his ashes in the box given to her.Decided to make an urn fitting for him.Not projects you enjoy making

Beautiful work, Bill. I’m very sorry about the passing of both your family members. You did them proud.

I am sorry for your loss, Bill. Your simplicity in design showed respect and dignity for those you lost.
