It can be used as an Urn for a person or Pet. It’s made from edge joined Teak and decorated with curly maple panels on the outside and birch interior.
You won’t find another box made like this one. It has one inch dowels from oak in the corners while set in the base. The teak is set over the dowels in plate fashion, and bonded. The dowels extend 3/4″ above the top plate and into the lid, which has a protruding carving that sets into the boxes interior. Once this thing is sealed up, it isn’t coming apart easily.
The laser work on the lids exterior is from a photograph you can send (upload) during the ordering process.
