This is a curly maple urn I was commissioned to make for a friend’s basset hound, Myrtle May. They wanted wood from the upper peninsula in Michigan and that is where I got this piece.
It is 5 1/2” square by 6 1/4” high. The body is 1/2 curly maple with mitered corners and 8 walnut X splines.
The body is doweled and glued to the base and the I left a bare edge on the top 1/4” inside of the body and on the lid for the lid to be glued in place.
I showed 3 shots of the build process. The body was clamped with a bungee cord for gluing. I got to use my tenon jig to rabbet cut the top and my X spline jig to finish off the corners.
It is finished with satin lacquer.
Laser work was done by Mike at Awards Pro.
