My daughter’s cat passed away and she asked if I would make a urn for her. She likes modern furniture so that gave me ideas for this box. I inlayed the top with 1/8 brass and the splines on the sides are also brass. The legs are 1/4 in brass tubes let into the boxand the bottom platform. It’s made of poplar and dyed with Black Sumi ink and finished it with gloss lacquer. Sumi ink is a true black and you don’t see the grain like you would with dye or stain.

Very attractive piece.
Well done.

Nice combination with the wood and brass Rich. I especially like the brass legs, definitely gives it a modern look. It will make a great resting place.
