HERE is some pretty cool art. Look around the site.
I have been working on a wooden urn for somebody at work. A woman at work asked me if I could help out. She has a friend whose husband died and she did not have the money to buy a nice urn for him. I have not met her, and never will, but thought it would be nice to do. He was younger then me by a couple of years and left a 5 year old son behind as well. I had a guy at work cut out the letters on a 4/4 oak board and then made the box from it. I had some heavy felt from covering a pooltable and put that on the inside part of the bottom plate. The lid has a rabbet around the edge so it just sits on there. I was happy with the results and I hope she likes it.
