Our cremation urns, I believe, are a bit different in that we don’t use, or at least, try not to use managed commercial lumber. Instead, we resurrect woods that has been used (salvaged from structures slated for demolition for example), or buy from people who salvage trees damaged in storms or retrieved from river bottoms. We do not attempt to hide the blemishes or scares from prior usages in the manufacture of our custom urns
Help your clients celebrate their loved one’s memory with hand crafted cremation urns from repurposed wood. Each urn is a one-of-a-kind; like people no urn is exactly the same. We offer a selection of different repurposed words or managed forests woods, styles and shapes to suit your needs or the needs of your customer.
A note about Cypress Wood
Crews don scuba gear instead of traditional lumberjack apparel to retrieve logs from Bald Cypress trees (commonly lived to be more than 1,000 to 1,500 years old) which were felled in the late 1800s, from riverbeds by hand or by using helicopters, one log at a time. These logs rested in their oxygen-free underwater sanctuary for 150+ years, preserving the unique qualities of lumber from those majestic, pure virgin trees. The ancient Egyptians used cypress to produce the pharaoh’s caskets, and in the middle Ages, craftsmen used it to carve enormous cathedral doors.
