Topic tags/keywords: question cedar mahogany greene and greene arts and crafts

So I have a question and I’d like to ask the community for help. It’s been a year almost since mom passed and I want to finally setup to make her an urn. I didn’t want to rush into it but wanted to wait til my head cleared a little bit. I have a cedar plank that I would like to use because it was one of my mothers favorite woods. I was thinking now of using it for the box itself. But I wanted to get everyone’s opinion on a complementary wood to go with it. I’m think about mahogany. I was also debating on going Greene and Greene style a little because I have enough ebony for a small box. Would love to get everyone’s feedback. Thanks in advance.

I usually build Mission style, but lately I’ve been eying up the G/G. The Cedar will be nice, with a pleasant aroma. Not sure how the Ebony will work with it, Cedar being so soft.

There is no wrong answer here. G&G in a small box can be so beautiful, especially if you have the ebony and pillow the plugs. Love to see it when you are done.
