I made this Urn for a friend’s final resting place. Her husband was an avid outdoorsman and she wanted me to make something that would portray him in some way. So, of course I made the mural of a white tailed deer from my Eleksmaker laser engraver and the box is made of Red Oak because in our youth, we used to hunt in Red Oak, Michigan. It was designed to hold 2 sets of cremains, so the dimensions of the box is; 13” x 10” x 7.5”. I applied one coat of MinWax oak stain on the box with 2 coats of Tung Oil. Thank you for looking. RIP my old friend.
