  1. Projects Urn Box For My Father

    I made this urn box for my father who passed away in February. I finished it a few months back but I am posting today because it would have been his birthday. It is made of Walnut and Cherry with Maple/Walnut splines. The cherry was from a tree he planoted as a boy in Louisiana. My cousin milled...

  4. Urn for Sister-in-laws ashes

    I was asked by my best bro-in-law to make an urn for his sisters ashes, which I considered to be a great honor, since I have known Tina for 2/3 of my life. They are of Greek ancestry and he wanted something to look like Greek architecture and kind of drew something out - and this is what I came...

  6. Keepsake Urn

    This is a keepsake urn. A cousin of my co-worker, Lori, passed away and upon seeing her obvious pain, I volunteered to make an urn for the cremains. I dug out a special piece of figured Myrtlewood I had been saving and started working on a design. After doing research online, I found that the...
  7. Simple Jatoba box/urn

    Simple Urn made for a family member who is terminally ill. Made from Jatoba for two reasons: 1) I had some around and she wanted it made from wood I already had; 2) she lived in South America for her teenage years and Jatoba is native to where she lived. The top is an inverted shaker table...
  8. Urn for nephew's ashes

    My sister lost her eldest son last year after he took his own life. A tremendous tragedy for our family. This urn represents both his transition from this world into the next, and our broken transition without him. This is the only project I've done where I felt the form was more important...

  10. Walnut Urn

    This is my first Urn. I made it for my mom when she died this January. Took me two days, The top is solid and I glued in a turned wooden screw.

  11. Urn Keepsake Box

    This was, without a doubt, my most difficult project. My Brother passed away unexpectedly last week, complications from the flu and and pneumonia.

  12. Last project I'll make for my mother

    Mom passed away this week. What made it more interesting was that she picked a day when a windstorm had gusts over 70 mph and knocked out power to over 100,000 people for 3 days. Just like I did for dad, I wanted to make the urn for her ashes but I had no electricity. One of our fellow LJ's...
  13. Grandma J's Urn and Memento Boxes

    Awhile back my father-in-law asked if I would create an urn for his 96 year-old mother (my wife's grandmother). Even though her passing wasn't imminent at the time, the family wanted to be prepared. For anyone who has built an urn for a friend or family member, then you know it's an incredible...
  14. For a Friend of a Friend

    I finished this urn a couple of months ago for my neighbors' friend, who had recently lost her mother. I made one for his wife who passed in 2011 and was honored that he liked it enough that he trusted me to do another for his friend. Much like the first time, he said it could just be a simple...

    My mother passed away November 28'th at the age of 95. She was quite interested in my woodworking adventures and liked having me bring over pieces of my projects in the making. We are traveling to Florida this weekend to inter her ashes. It is made of white oak and almost entirely hand tools...
  16. Oak Urn

    I had the honor of making an urn for my dad. One of his favorite past times was growing roses so each end of the urn has a rose. The fourth photo was taken during the funeral at Ft. Rosecrans Cemetery in San Diego. He hasn't let me know whether he likes it or not. :^)

  17. Urn

    I often take completed boxes, etc. to school to show a few friends. One of the parent volunteers saw them and asked if I would make an Urn for her husband's father's ashes. I had never done one and didn't know the father, but I have seen some great work here and gave it a try. I was given a...

  20. Urn

    Not a project I ever wanted to do. My Grandmother passed away recently and rather than the stock urn, I felt it only right that I make her resting place until she is scattered. I only hope she likes it, otherwise I may get haunted!! It was a cathartic process and unlike some other turnings...
