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

thanks guys the funeral was yesterday and it was well received there as well. @kywoodchopper it is not wipe on lacquer, it is sprayed on but rubbed out buffed with rottonstone then pumice to a gloss finish, a method my father used on his violins

Beautiful urn for a sister very much loved, I'm sure. I'm so sorry for your loss; may her ashes rest easy in that beautiful case.
