I mentioned a while ago that I was going to make urns for my granddaughter’s ashes, one for the mother and one for the father. The urns are finished and are made out of birds eye maple that I had on hand with cherry bases. The bottom is attached with screws. This has been an emotionally difficult project but has allowed me to make her final resting places.
I hope I never have to make another.

Beautiful work. Your skill and selection of material will most certainly honor her memories. I hope you never have to make another one either. I’m sure it was a quite emotional build, but you should be proud of your nice work.

Tom , I had to make one for my Step Daughter so I know what you mean and how you feel about making another one.
Mine was not very good as I did it pretty quickly with less tools than I have now but it had a Lot of Love put into it and I just couldn’t take the idea of her being in one of those Plastic tubs you get from the funeral home.
You did a Great Job on this and it will be well received and appreciated by those of get it.

Have your say...
