I made this today for my Dad who passed away on the 9th of November, I have to do some sanding to it yet
Also a finish it’s made of Red Oak, I thought of him as I made it and strange as it may seem I recalled the last thing we said to each other.I Love You and it made me smile

I uploaded a picture of the finished urn

Jim my deepest condolence and what a wonderful urn you have produced. I lost my father some 20 year ago and I think of him plenty when I’m working in my shop. Over the years I come to realize that he’s never left he lives inside of me a bond that will never be broken :)...thanks for sharing BC

Sad for loss. Nice tribute. I would think that it would be hard to build with that on your mind.

My father was a life long woodworker as was my grandfather. They both imparted both skill and wisdom to me as I’m sure your father did to you. Morn his passing but rejoice in his memory. My dad was some what an organized packrat and he stored things in coffee cans which I now call “Dad Cans”. I smile every time I’m looking for a bolt,nail,washer,or some other treasure. Some day I hope to move these along to my son.
