    Ticket 37392 I have watched the video discussing this, but is there a video walking through the various steps?

    Any suggestions on wood & finish to color coordinate with a Marine Corps Blood Stripe inlay? I can’t post a pic or seem to copy a link for an image search, but if you google USMC Blood Stripe, you’ll get something that will show you the colors. Thanks.

      Hi Tim. I would suggest looking at Transtint dyes, and choosing the one that looks best. You can also experiment with blending multiple colors together to customize the look that you’re after. At a glance, I’d say that this one is the closest:
      As far as wood goes, I would suggest hard maple because it generally accepts colors evenly.

    I just made a box for my Black Lab, wish I had seen this earleir but I am pleased with what I did, I also stood a cross that I cut out with the scroll saw and edged with the router on the top. I then purchased a name plate to be placed on it. He is a13yr.old Black Lab and won’t be with me much longer but I needed to be prepared. Maybe now I will make one for myself! Thanks for the information.

    George as a retired mortician there is a difference between a cremation casket and cremation Urn a cremation casket is a casket that you can cremate the body in the Urn is what the remains go into.

        Hi Jason. I’ve heard it both ways, and I’m not sure if there’s an official designation.
