There is an unbelievable difference between genuine solid wood cremation urns and the cheap knockoffs that use veneers and particle board.
Wood is the perfect choice for a cremation urn. There is something peaceful and soothing about wood.

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.

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.
