I've been working on developing a different style of cremation urns. What do you think?

How are the tops attached? Looks like a very tight fit. How is the inside prepared/finished?

Default Urns

The tops are built in place & are not removable. The top rings are assembled with glue, placed in a ring jig to support & keep them round while they are rabbeted on the inside & fitted with a plywood disc top. After sanding both sides flat, the bottom round over is routed & is sanded where it would be difficult to sand after assembling to the main body. After the top is glued & nailed in place, the pre-assembled veneer disc is installed, trimmed with around over bit & all is sanded.
The bottoms are built similarly except instead of a solid plywood disc, a plywood ring ring is used. This creates a recess in the bottom for a removable cover. The inside is sealed with a clear finish.
The way I did it was more a labour of love. A faster way would have to be done before they could be produced commercially, as I had hoped.

Hi, Paul.
At a first glance I didn't think that they were urns.
It sounds as a very interesting process to fabricate and attach the rings to the cylinder.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

This is a display pedestal I built for a local sculptor using the same 16 sided technique as the urns. The wood is solid quarter sawn white oak with shop sawn veneer of the same wood for the top. The second picture is before the top was covered.
The piece is 24" diameter x 18" high with a 2" recessed base.
