Had a commission for two Pet Urns. Needed to be the same but different as they were for separate pets’ ashes and would be placed either end of the mantel.
Way back in time I had some fun making feature rings and storing them away. I was able to find two similar patterns one bigger than the other, the rest of the urns is segmented plywood with red gum spacers, lids and bases. Buyers were happy, and I was happy, making good dollars andusing up bits and pieces that were taking up space.
Pic 3 is another I have made but not sold as yet.

Very nice urns and new way of mixing ply wood with red gum.
Also, it’s good to hear you make money of your hobby. Good luck.

The “ply master” : ))
Nice job on the matching pair Bob, bet the owner is pleased with this set.
I like the timber combo, guess this opens up another direction for you,
Well done Mate
