Urn for a soldier

Urn for a soldier

Maker: Greg Guertin

Location: Norfolk, Virginia

I built this urn for a friend who was retired US Army veteran of the Vietnam war. I used black walnut for the sides and bottom as well a small strip of curly maple on the panel to display the name plate. On the top I used two pieces book-matched crotch black walnut and a piece of curly mahogany for the cross. Finish is stain filler and four thin coats of lacquer.
