My son-in-law lost his beloved dog Roscoe while he was serving in Iraq. He asked me to make something to display the dogs ashes and collar, etc.

This was a little beyond my skill level as far as joinery went, so I eventually opted for inset screws and buttons. It is made of red oak and stained with Varathane Summer Oak.

I am so GLAD that this project is done!

Beautiful Project!

I really like the proportions and overall design. I know your son-in-law will be touched by your work.

That’s a beautiful piece, and very thoughtful of you. I like this alot, more so than I think I would, if there was not a great reason behind this project. Either way it came out great, nice job.
