Bespoke Wooden Urn
As featured in Devon Life Magazine
Bespoke Wooden Urns that are handmade here in Devon, England. Created in solid oak our natural wooden urns really show off the oak’s real character and beauty.
Our carpenter is a highly skilled craftsman and creates each urn in his workshop on the edge of Dartmoor. It does take time, he has to ensure that your urn will last. The right wood has to be selected and seasoned. The grain has to suit the design. And the finish has to be smooth enough to stroke. They are such a pleasure to hold.
You can have it finished with Danish oil that gives the wood a wonderful warm hue. Or he can send it to you unfinished with a pot of his beeswax (yes he keeps bees and makes the beeswax himself – his hone is pretty amazing too!). You can then rub the wax into the wood yourself which is a very soothing thing to do.
You can choose to have the option of a plaque with your own personal message of up to 90 characters engraved upon it. We tend to use brass or stainless steel plaques.
Dimensions: Dependent upon choice of urn
Capacity: Depending upon what you choose the urn can hold a full set of ashes, a small amount of ashes or two sets of ashes.
Keeping the Ashes
Many people keep their loved one’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the home. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel with the loss of your loved one and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the photo it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
