Your Urn is beautiful, could explain the “vinegar and steel wool” technique.

Vince. Add a pad of steel wool to a 1/2 gallon of vinegar and let the steel wool dissolve. Cherry, Oak and Walnut have a lot of tannins in them and the mixture will turn the wood black or sometimes a gun metal blue. In the case of this piece of burl it turned it to the blue color. I did sand it back some and took some of the color out. If you put it on a rough piece of wood where it can penetrate better it will turn coal black. Sounds like another blog.

Nice urn! Very creative. I have been studying these things and it seems so much more urgent the older I get. I intend to make my own coffin or urn, haven’t exactly decided yet. I’d rather plan ahead than end up in a standard box.
