This is an urn I made for a Yorkshire Terrier named Tabor. Material is walnut and curly maple, with walnut dowels. I made the dog bone tag at a vending machine and epoxied it to the side in addition to the single screw, because I didn’t want the tag to rotate freely over time and scratch up the box. I’m not happy with how the bottom left walnut dowel turned out, as it is just slightly off…but it was my first time doing something like this. Finish is clear gloss poly.

Lee, we are often our own worst critics. The box looks great, a good combination of wood and a very slick finish. I’m sure Tabor approves.

It looks great from here. Like the beautiful wood combo and finish. It is a great home for a great pet. Well done!

Very nicely done. I’m sorry about the loss of the dog.
