Default Urn For Sister

Well its that time again, I don't mind making urns but I really don't like it when it is a close family member. My sister passed away last week and well here I am with the Paduak again. My sister loved Elephants so I designed a banner/inlay to go around the base with elephants. I use my trusty ol 45 sled to ensure perfect miters. Here are a few of the build pics and the finished urn beautifully finished with clear rubbed lacquer.

I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.

That is one beautiful Urn that I'm sure she would be extremely proud of.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I’m sure she would be proud of it. My condolences to you and your family.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
