My little brother passed away a couple of Sundays ago after just forty years. He wanted to be cremated, so we honored his request. He was stubborn, hard-nosed, opinionated and proud....and hated imported anything and, considering the latter, I resolved to build his urn myself. It wasn't too technically challenging but I had the hardest time keeping meself composed whils't measuring and cutting. I hope that I did ok for him.

Tough job to do, but you did it admirably. Simplicity and beauty is hard to achieve and you did it. Perfect proportions. You should be proud of yourself.
