At 9:30 p.m. on a tuesday night, my wife called me on her way home from work and said that she needed me to make a urn box for her 92 year old grandma that had passed away. A box had already been made, but it looked like something a failed woodshop student made. Her funeral was that Thursday, so I only had 1 day to make it. I went out to my workshop that night and worked on the box until 1:30 a.m. The next night I was up until midnight putting the final coat of poly on and attaching the hardware. After two late nights & not much sleep, I built my wifes grandma a beautiful urn box that she deserved to be laid to rest in. It was an honor. RIP Dorine, and thanks for the memories, and the cream corn casserole ;)
