We all hate to think about death, but have to come to grips at some point. This may not be a very popular topic, but there have been some who have asked about making urns for ashes. I have made an urn for a deceased friend at the request of his widow. Urns typically have been made in the shape of a jar. I have come up with a thought that may appeal to someone who makes urns. Instead of the usual jar shape, why not make it in the form of a minature coffin. It would certainly become a conversation piece sitting on a fireplace mantle.

After posting this thread, I did a search and found that there are companies that make urns in just about any shape you want. They even make keepsake jewelry for ashes.

I made one for my daughter in the shape of a box, you can see it on my projects page. although the jar type is the traditional shape, I don’t think it is the rule. Good luck
