Maple Wood Cremation Urns Made in the USA

Maple Urns Made in the USA

Maple wood is uniquely light with elegant, wavy grain patterns of just slightly darker mocha tones. This light wood makes it an ideal ideal for laser engraving, as the laser etches and burns the wood to create a nicely contrasting sepia brown.

Maple is our preferred wood for engraved photo cremation urns, and works perfectly as an accent in our many 3-dimensional inlay art memorial urns.
