I’ve been making a lot of urns lately, a small vet here in Boise has me making all their urns which are mostly just quick easy and give them 50 at a time kind of things but these are some of the few high end ones that I get to make every so often.

The second to the last one is actually for my cousin to put my uncle in its made from fiddle back maple and sapele but next time I make this one i’m gonna give it a semi gloss since it really doesn’t’ seem to pop as nice as I would like. I just kind of drew some lines around it and went at it with the angle grinder flap sander and hoped for the best. I wish I could get some better pics of this but its already on the east coast sitting on my cousins shelf. Guess I need to make another to get some photo time.

So the first one is fiddle back maple and sapele also, with mitered edges, love the look but miters are the bane of my existence LOL.

Second is yellow heart and wormy maple, I love the simplicity of this one.

Third one I already noted above and the last one is sapele and leopard wood (so does anyone know if lacewood and leopard wood are one in the same, I ask because i used to always get lacewood and now I can’t seem to find it but the leopard wood seems to be the exact same except more dense) Anyway this was probably the most difficult of the three.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Nice urns Dug. They will make great resting places for any purpose. Doesn’t it give you a good feeling if chosen by a family member to use for a loved one.
I’m with you on the lace wood, leopard wood deal. If it looks the sames, feels the same, smells the same it’s the same. That’s my deal. LOL.

Your urns are beautiful. This is something I’ve wanted to do for many years. One thing I’ve wondered about … do you use any sort of seal (rubber gasket or other) on the opening?

Dug, These urns are very nice and what a nice thing to do! I’m wondering if I could proposition my vet to do the same thing or at least offer the option to clients. Great job with the angle grinder, too, adds a unique and interesting touch!

I don’t put any kind of seal on these but the place I do these for put the ashes in a bag first then in the urns. I would have to find out if other places do it different before I made more.

And thanks for the comment :)
