I want to build an urn for my dog and want it to be something real nice. I want to use an exotic wood, but I'm not sure what. All of my projects have been with oak, poplar, or pine. If anyone has a reliable source and/or recommendation of a type of exotic, I would appreciate it.

Also, I was thinking about either hollowing out a block of wood and working with it as a solid piece, or using 1X material and building a basic box. I plan to do some inlays and make it a little fancy, but first I need the basic box. Any suggestions on which way you would do it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link. Anyone else ever built an urn before? Shouldn't be a difficult project, but I'll end up making it difficult anyhow, because I want it to be really nice.
