My Niece which helps us tend to my & my wife’s mother is getting married later this year and she is going to use the sand ceremony. She wanted an urn that her 3yr son could pour sand into also. This is what I came up with and she liked it but I am not satisfied so I will surprise her and make another more ornate one later.

It is 6” x 2” and made of cedar and she wanted it unfinished so the smell would be there. Does anyone know of a finish that won’t mask the smell of the cedar?

Hey! Dewayne never heard of a sand ceremony before as far as a finish that would work on cedar and still leave the cedar smell I don’t know of any maybe just finish the outside, and leave the inside unfinished.
very unusal turning looks like a large bullet. ha! ha!

Thanks for the comments.

Bill that’s what I thought about the looks. Didn’t really see it till I reversed it to turn the bottom.
