This urn was built by my brother Roy, my son Tom and myself for my mother’s ashes. It is made from curly koa with a maple inlay and finished in a satin finish. This project was completed in 2 days. The urn is about 14” on a side and about 7” tall with a volume of 220 cubic inches.

Design or Plan used: My own design
