My daughter recently lost her almost constant companion of the last dozen years or so. When I learned they were going to have Zoe cremated, I offered to make them a urn and this is what I came up with. 7×7 x 6 1/2” and finished with Danish Oil. Access is through the bottom by removing a couple of brass screws. Still waiting on the name plate but otherwise it’s ready to go.
