I got an order for a pet urn from a customer who bought two of them before. I was told they were to be like the other two so I pulled the drawing and had the curly maple one built that day. Then he called and said the can of ashes was bigger and I was out of curley or birdsey maple. He settled on female box elder and that is what the second one is.

The small one is 6 1/4 square and 7” high. the big one is 7 1/4” square and 8” high. They are both finished with satin lacquer.
The laser lettering was done by LJ Kposty…Thanks Ken and Laura !

Cheers, Jim

Beautiful. Fitting resting place for a family fur-person.

beautiful tribute and just as nice urns. I just knew I liked the box elder best until I got a closer look at the curly maple -

Sweet boxes for a sour occasion. Love me some box-elder. Probably the wood I most want to get some of.

How did you put the whole thing together?

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Joe. The lid comes off and you drop in the can full of the pet’s ashes. Then the lid is glued in place. I left that area unfinished so the glue would penetrate.

Cheers, Jim

Cool urns Jim. Always a shame to loose your pet friends. These boxes should give them many remembrances.

Great looking urns. I need to make a couple of larger ones. Hopefully they won’t be needed anytime soon.

Hi Ivan, over here the pets get treated better than humans! We are in lock down now in Michigan and the barber shops and hair salons are closed but the dog grooming places never were closed. make sense???

Anyway, when they cremate a pet , they put the ashes in a can with a lid on it. I make the urn so the can can be dropped inside.

cheers, Jim
