I was asked to create a box as a pet urn for the ashes of a cat. The owner requested a container in the shape of a tear drop and this was the result. This was the most difficult project I have ever turned on the lathe.

The base is Jarrah and the “box” is Jatoba. Base is 9.5” diameter, box is 3.5” diameter and 8.5” tall.

Finished with Watco Danish Oil and General Arm-R-Seal varnish.

Completed 1-2015

Yet crying. Because their pet just died.
