This Box was made from Black Walnut with a laminated maple cross. It loads from the bottom so the top side looks clean. I always have mixed emotions when making these for family or friends, I love woodworking but these are for a very sad event.

Ummm. Someone correct me if I’m wrong but “urine” is what you do in the bathroom and “Urn” is what you put cremation ashes in…. I mean it’s nice work but usually folks put them on a mantle not in the bathroom.
Good work either way

It is a very nice urn. Perhaps one of the moderators could fix the title.

Nice work on a project that I think every wood worker is honored to do, but no one wants to do. I’ve done one, for a friend, his Mother, but was sad during the entire build. Great job and the walnut/maple combination is striking! Note, you can edit the title. :)

Although painful, a very nice way to honor someone.
Well done.

That is a beautiful Urn. Sorry if it has to be used any time soon.

I’ve made several for beloved pets, but never (yet) for a person. I suggested to my wife that I could make matching urns for us, but she wasn’t too receptive of that idea…
