My sister recently lost her dog of 14 years and asked me to build an urn for her dogs ashes. These photos are just after the first coat of Tung Oil. She didn’t give much direction on what she wanted, she just said come up with something nice … hopefully she’ll be happy with it.

Trip hammer tools. I had to weld a piece of scrap on the back of these so ball bearings wouldn’t damage my hammer dies. Those ball bearings are made of tough stuff!

Here’s the first of three butterfly’s that I will be putting into help with the crack. It’s a bit of slow process to get these to fit well, but I kind of like the Zen of slowly but surely getting these to fit and look nice. I’ll post a completed photo once it’s done.

This is a fireplace mantel that I milled out a year ago and after hanging above the fireplace for a while, it has decided it wanted to crack. So I will be doing some repair work on it to get it back into shape.

I may have posted this photo before but I like the shot. Plus the no cutting sign and the old dull western saw in the background always make me laugh.

Hand hammered copper test piece. This is the black one and I’m still working on a blue/green one.
