I lost my father very suddenly this past Monday,
my family asked if I would make the box to hold his ashes.
I told them I would be honored to do so,
and it also helped to have something productive to focus on.
Exterior box is Medium Cherrywood Ply.
Interior box is Medium Clear Green Acrylic.
Engraved on the outside of the Acrylic box are the words to my Dad’s favorite hymn.
The interior of the Cherrywood box has pictures engraved on all sides,
including the lid, of the kids and grandkids.
The bottom is lined with black felt.
The future for this ash keepsake box
is to live in a place of remembrance in his home
with his surviving spouse.
What a lovely heartwarming tribute. Surrounding him with family for all time.
So sorry for your loss. Loosing a parent is so very hard. You made a beautiful memorial box inside and out.
So sorry for your loss. Sudden or expected, it hurts like hell. Beautiful box.
This is a beautiful tribute. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Sorry for your loss. This looks great.
So sorry for your loss, but I concur - Dad would have loved that
Absolutely. Nice job on that! Especially the top engraving, and the family pictures were a wonderful idea, I love that!
So beautiful. I am in awe of what you created for your Dad.
Unexpectedly lost my mom nearly 3 years ago now (time truly does fly by…) and I’ve still yet to make the tribute I planned on making. Sorry for your loss, and a beautiful resting place for your father.
You did a great job and I am certain your father would be very proud of your work. Our condolences to you and your family.

Your father’s smile is beautiful.

He would do anything to help people. I miss him and love him dearly.

Very beautiful and well thought out tribute to your father. Sure to be a treasured remembrance.
My condolences. That is a very nice urn.
So very sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family. I am sure everyone will love this beautiful treasure that you have created.
