When choosing the cremation urn that will serve as your loved one’s final resting place, it is worth the time and effort to find the best quality at a respectable price.
While there are many types of urns out there, perhaps there is no greater disparity in quality among wooden cremation urns. While the photos you see online may look similar, don’t be deceived. There is an unbelievable difference between genuine solid wood cremation urns and the cheap knockoffs that use veneers and particle board.
There is something peaceful and soothing about wood. The natural lines of the wood grain, created from years of undisturbed growth in the wild, soundlessly speak of towering trees beside the still waters of a mountain lake or the soft chirping of birds around a well-trodden forest foot path.
Here we showcase one of our most popular cremation urns, a beautiful, rustic bass fisherman funeral urn memorial. Crafted in a small Oregon woodshop using premium hardwoods, intricate inlays, and laser etched detailing, this cremation urn is a beautiful way to celebrate the one who loved to fish.

Horses are loved by many. The majestic power, the graceful movement, the equine beauty. Horse themed cremation urns are a popular choice as a memorial for people who loved horses, and there are plenty from which to choose.
At Urns Northwest, we offer some brilliant and premium horse themed cremation urns. Our most beloved designs are wood funeral urns made in the USA that are either standard sized (to hold the remains of one person) or companion sized (to hold the remains of two people, usually a husband and wife).
The premium feature of our horse urns is the 3-dimensional wood inlay art scene on the front of the memorial; this is a selection of laser etched woods in their natural colors which are assembled together like a 3-dimensional jigsaw puzzle to create a vivid, lifelike, yet earthy wood inlay art scene.
Update 7/28/20. For the first 3+ years of offering these round wood cremation urns starting in late 2016, we had very positive reviews from our satisfied and appreciative customers. However, for an alarming amount of recent orders we have found that this artist’s quality control has gone seriously downhill, and we are no longer offering these products.
We’re leaving up this post so that you can be aware of this development if you find these urns on other websites. Please just know that the quality and craftsmanship used to be excellent, so this should not reflect badly on urn stores that have not experienced issues (yet) and are thus still offering these products.
We’re leaving the full text below unchanged (aside from removing the links to the products), so you’ll have an idea of how the product used to be. It is disappointing, but manufacturers and shops change their capabilities, production values, and/or experience other issues all the time. We try to stay on top of these sorts of things so that you will always receive the finest cremation urns from Urns Northwest to honor your loved one.
If you ever receive anything that is less than 100% satisfactory from us, please let us know and we will take care of it.
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. We offer a complete line of maple wood cremation urns made in the USA, using premium solid maple combined with superior craftsmanship to deliver an heirloom-quality product in honor of your loved one.
When you’re searching through all the wood cremation urns for an heirloom quality memorial to honor your loved one, you’ll find lots of stuff out there. But it might be difficult to tell which items are the enduring type that your family will treasure for generations.
We have been getting regular requests for some of our most popular wood cremation urns shipped to Australia. It appears that the funeral urn market in AU is rather saturated with medium-to-poor-quality foreign imports.
Reports we have had from customers tell the same story again and again: they have a very tough time finding durable, premium, and lasting hardwood cremation urns crafted individually with precision and skill.
