Thanks Jim. Had I had more time I would have added some type of small molding to the bottom…the upper assembly has to lift off the base to get the ashes in, thus the screws at the bottom. Nicer screws would have been nice too but Sunday I used what I had (I can swap them out with brass now…he’s in there now).

It was interesting though. The lumber was rough and I only have a Delta 6” jointer and a 13” Delta planer. The box sides are only 4” high so no problem there getting them to 1/2 thickness. The top and bottom were glue-ups of wider stuff because one thing I have learned is grain-matching is an art! I was lucky to find some nice stuff that I was able to flatten on the planer with a lot of TLC to get them to 1 1/4”. From there it was my trusty PC 690 router with more TLC (no time for a goof-up there). Of course start with the end grain so the edge cuts clean-up any chip out…several passes at 1/8” at a time.
