The US Navy will have to get rid of me. Either body or ashes dumped into the ocean. Body after death (I hope)

Reckon it would be easier on you if they dump your body after you die instead of before.

Some of us wouldn't care either way, of course.

today's progress. box made up, still need to inset some horizontal corner splines tomorrow, and have the top gluing up.

second pic is a detail shot of the vertical corner spline sanded flush.

sides are mahogany, bottom is maple.

the person who requested this just sent an email asking how things were going, so i sent these same pics just a moment ago.

it's nice that all y'all like this, but I only worry if the recipient will like it.

I have no idea how to price such work. Besides, they are friends in need.

I've seen your work a few years ago before you moved out here. I often thought of an urn disguised as a big picture frame with the ability to place the bag of ashes in the back of it with a pic of the deceased on the front and hang it right on the wall.

got the corner splines installed today.

assuming the hardware arrives in the mail today (will check shortly), i can get the hinges and latch fit up tomorrow, then begin applying the finish.

and don't forget to brand it!
