A friend’s wife after a painfully hard battle, passed away from pancreatic cancer at 38. He asked me to make a small urn to keep part of her ashes in. It was an honored to be asked. Then he asked me to do it on my mini lathe. I’m new to turning and hadn’t done anything other than pens. That made me apprehensive to say the least. I used a piece of cherry he and his dad had cut with his dad’s saw mill. Once finished I drilled a hole in the bottom almost to the top. This holds a small vessel with her ashes. Finished it with Shellawax and EEE-Shine. I placed a quarter next to it for scaling in the photo.

38 is much, much too young. Cancer is a horrible thing. You have given him something that he’ll have & cherish forever – you should be proud of that.
