Pet Urn Several times now I've been asked to build a box to hold the ashes of someone's beloved and departed pet.Each time it's a challenge to design a box that remembers the pet with respect and dignity yet remains low-key enough so it doesn't attract too much attention.
This is one such box, made of mineral coloured maple with walnut end caps.The woods can be chosen from trees your pet may have lived near.You can even choose different colours of woods to represent your pet.
Notice with this box that the main portion is off the ground, and the top is gently curved, inviting someone's hand to touch, and rest a minute.The design is reflective of the pet in whose honour it is made.
This project takes a weekend to construct and uses about 5 bd.ft.of lumber.It's design follows the basic rules of the "golden rectangle".Joinery is decidedly simple.The plywood bottom is scr*w*d on, completing and sealing the final resting place.
Prepare the StockBegin by squaring and thicknessing your stock.Rip your stock to the appropriate widths and cross cut to their appropriate lengths.Be sure to use a stop-block when cross cutting the lid and the sides....
