Curly maple cremation urns with wedge accent keys.
I sell a few cremation urns each year – mostly by word-of-mouth and nearly always on short notice. (I keep a few in inventory.) Sometimes I get a request in advance of actual need. That sure works better for me!
I recently received a request from a couple for two urns. I was able to make both pieces from a single maple board. Note, like many woodworkers, when I’m shopping for lumber my eye is often drawn to highly figured pieces. It can pay off…

I am interested in something with a great wood look much like this one above it needs to have at least 300 cubic inch size and I am not in a rush. I like American made and I am trying to keep the coast down if possible. Is it something you can do ? Thank you in advance
Thank you so much for your immediate response this is the best customer service ever. I will share my first Urn with you shortly. Jill is the best
Interested in a urn box as shown, want to do some fret work to laminate.Are you open to this. This is for my brother who requested certain design
If you are asking whether you can modify the design, yes, that’s no problem. If you are looking for someone to make this for you, that isn’t something that we do at WWGOA, as we are strictly a source for woodworking educational content.

I’m a novice. Made the urns for my mother and father and my first grandson who was still born. Have a family plot that goes back to when time began. Any burial charges are city related. Cemetary maintained by volunteers. Live in a retirement subdivision and woodwork in my garage. Maybe I can plan for my neighbors as well. Do not have a lathe but more tools than home depot.Ha ha. Trying to get a firm grasp of size of container ( because will vary depending on configuration of unit, tall, wide etc.)
Would have like to see the bottom view. How many cubic inch and are these sealed with screws on the bottom.These in the photo look commercially made and cold.
Hello! I found this an interesting site to lwarn from. I love woodwork. My question is, as to becoming a member, are any of your movies captioned? Im hearing impaired.
Hi, Wayne. Unfortunately, our videos are not closed captioned at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and have forwarded this suggestion on to the proper department.
I would like to make urns with a top that slide in ( sliding dovetails ) I have not found spring steel that won’t bend under pressure. Have any ideas?
Hi, John. Sorry, I am not aware of a source for this either, but I’ll let you know if I come across anything that might work.
I had to make a companion urn recently. My wife’s parents were killed in a fire just before Christmas. I learned a lot defining it. I didn’t know that there were so many rules for them.
i would like to know more about how to determine the size , and even a little more about the design used in the short video…
