This cremation urn is a unique geometric design that holds ashes of up to a 225-pound human. It is made from the finest woods selected for strength, beauty and stability to honor the memory of your loved one. The interior is sealed with shellac and the exterior is finished with water based lacquer polished and buffed to a beautiful sheen.
The 'door' is removed using the magnetic base. You can keep the magnetic base attached to the box or keep it hidden in order to prevent the contents from being accessed.

I make two other sizes appropriate for pets and smaller humans.

To view the 125 pound (cu-in) box see this listing:

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

The finish I use is a CAB acrylic lacquer from Sherwin Williams with the vinyl sealer base coat. I often use paste wax with steel wool to make the piece feel better to the touch and to bring out the sheen.
Very little care if any is necessary aside from removing dust occasionally. You can use an air canister if you like. You may also use any wax type polish to bring out the sheen. If alcohol or a chemical gets on the piece, wipe off immediately. Letting a chemical sit will ruin the finish.
The leather lining I use is a synthetic suede called Ultrasuede. It can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Custom orders are accepted based on wood type only, unless a large quantity is desired. My boxes are all made in batches and are not conducive to size changes. I can do monograms as seen in this listing:

    I bought the perfect urn. It is so special, so beautiful, my mom would approve. The urn has wonderful energy in it as well. I can literally feel how it was made with so much care. I am so grateful.

    The artist was great to work with! It was clear he took great pride in his work and wanted me to be happy with the results.

    I am using this "box" as a Memory Box or Time Capsule for my nephews son. It will be filled with notes, letters and keepsakes. It will be given to him when he turns 18.

    I thought the secret door would be cool for a young boy but had no idea how secret, the secret door is. The joints are perfection. I literally could not find the opening without use of the magnets.

    The box is even better looking in person. It's difficult to capture the majesty of a 12-sided box from one angle.

    The craftsmanship is flawless, the art is beautiful. It is an impressive tribute for any use.

    Bravo - Eugene!
