I was honoured to be asked to make my grandmothers urn when she passed. I only had 2 days to make this and found a nice piece of sapelle. I had no plans drawn up and just started building. Amazingly, this is the only project I’ve ever done where i haven’t run into any problems the entire creation. The corners are mitered with maple splines. The top is lasered with a design my wife and I created. Finished with danish oil.

I’ve had the occasion to build several urns for loved ones. It’s a bittersweet task. Nicely done.

My sympathy to you and your family. Your work on this urn is beautiful.

Have your say...
