  1. I really love your work, I’m trying to fine someone that can make a recliner urn, cant fine one ,my husband loved his recliner and his girls are wanted one for there Daddy

  2. Looking for 2 matching urns. Very Hard wood dark in color.
    Need to be vertical oriented so can be placed side by side in one niche in veterans cemetery. Will add local silver engraved plaque.
    Can you handle and if so cost. No rush.
    Please provide outside dimensions.
    Husband 220 lbs. Wife 140 lbs.
