Since I'm not up to hollow forms appropriate for cremation urns, I made this box, actually two, both for family members.  Cherry and birdseye maple with WOP finish.

You might not be doing hollow forms (yet), but you sure seem to have flatwork down pretty good.  smiley=thumbsup.gif Beautiful work, Jenny.

Very nice. I am supposed to make a couple of those as well. Now I have an idea of what I want them to look like. Thank You.

They are wonderful, did you use a router table to cut your own molding profiles or did you do it free hand with your router? I make music boxes and furniture so I am always curious. I love the maple panels that made them unique.

I did use the router table for the profiles.  Overall, the project was, yet another, learning exercise.  If I make any more similar boxes, I would use a locking mitre bit for the corner joints.  I wanted to inlay the top but chickened out.  Maybe next time. Smiley

great looking work

scale those up a little bit to ~ 1 1/2' x 1 1/2' x 2' and they'd be what my mother refers to as a "dowry chest"....she's a tole-painter and painted one of that size for me to put christmas ornaments in for storage off-season...

go up a little more and it'd become a blanket chest...

Jennie,
Don't sell yourself short...........from what I've seen of your
work you can turn a cremation urn on the lathe.
Just try!
I felt the same at one time, but I was determined to make it work, its not much harder than turning a vase or bowl.
If the photo comes thru its of my first Urn.
Its made from a Catalpa tree with a piece of Birch turned and carved to represent an "eternal flame".
Its 12" x 4" with 50 cu. in., large enough for a med. size pet.
As an artist, your comments are welcome, and as far as your concerned......TRY IT ! you might like it.

Your urn is very beautiful Angelo.  I am starting to do a little hollowing now, so I will get there on something like this.  I also have a lathe big enough to do it now.  Something to aspire to. 
How did you make the flames?  I like them.

I turned a piece of "birch" to the outside shape i needed, then hollowed the piece and finished by hand with a dremel
tool for shaping and sanding. (a little tedious).
Using oil paints I finished it off and Poly'd it for protection.
