I had a request to build this Urn for a Friend. He wanted it to be simple but requested a Bulldozer on the top. So it was etched in with my laser engraver. Because of the size, it took about 3 hours to etch. It turned out good due to the pine I was working with. Incidentally the material that is used was from one piece of pine that I’d been saving for years for a special project. It has several coats of Lacquer. Thanks for looking.

Wonderful way to honor a friend. I love the dozer design too. I always tell my wife to just throw my ashes in a foodplot so I can watch the deer. Lol

Beautiful job the urn, Don. I would be proud to have my ashes put in an urn like the one you built for your friend. Great job, my friend. Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys, I wasn’t trying for an award for this project, but it happened. Many of my friends know it took a lot for me to make this and they know the reasons why. I’m just glad it’s done. Thanks again friends.
