My mom-in-law adopted a stray kitten about a month ago. It was sick at the time, and unfortunately she never got better. So after she passed I was requested to make a little box for the ashes.

It’s made mostly from mahogany. The walnut pull is secured to the cherry lid with two little dowels. The lid fits very snug, so a little bead of epoxy around the inside lip should make for a nice final seal. The bottom is 1/2” birch ply set into interior grooves. Finished with a spray lacquer. I still need to spray a few more coats, but as of last night it was ready enough for pictures.

Thats very nice work, I’m sure Mom in law appreciates knowing that the kitten has a nice final resting place.
