Urn for a friend

Furnished content.

Urn for a friendI lost a good friend this last January, and was both honored and grieved to be able to make his cremation urn. It took me quite a long time of starting, stopping, and changing design before it finally got finished. Emotionally, it was pretty hard to make. He was a sculptor, so I did a photo transfer on to a maple panel of his hand holding a tool. He liked weird antique boxes, so the other panels are a laser cut filigree rose pattern. All ribbon mahogany and a walnut base. It is pretty imperfect, but that's what I kind of liked about it.

Bangle #2

Bangle #2After making the first one and having a hard time with it because it wasn't complete circle, I decided to try a segmented one using .5” BB plywood as a prototype. Once I saw what it was going to look like I knew it had to have some color. I tried red, blue and yellow on a scrap and I liked the red even before I put a finish on it.It is made of 32 segments and was fun to see what was going on with the strips. I didn't expect it to look as cool as it did. I've seen pieces of furniture made with BB and always liked them, but never thought it would work for a piece of costume jewelry.Here are the only other pictures I took. I only have these because I was so amazed at the pattern it made that I took a couple of shots to send to my wife.
