    My wife's aunt passed away. The surviving ladies from the family met with the funeral home guys.

  5. Cremation Memorial Box

    My sister-in-law asked me to make a cremation memorial box for her dad who died in a car accident. Her requirements were, "All he wanted was a pine box". I couldn't bring myself to just make a plain pine box, so I added a bit of walnut to it. I hope he would be happy with the modification.

    Like the other dove box posted, I had a pair of doves making a nest somewhere they would not be successful. These guys were trying to nest on top of a ladder on my patio. There was a huge pile of grass, twigs and other nest matrial on the ground. I put up this nest box last night and removed...
