This is perhaps the oddest woodworking request I will ever receive.
In failing health, my father-in-law was given only days to live. My mother-in-law came into my shop and asked if I would do her a favor, make an urn for my father-in-law. Knowing nothing about the requirements I contacted the funeral director to inquire about codes and regulations. I also researched on the web to get ideas. This is the final product. Zebrawood and walnut accents with hand rubbed oil finish.
