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.
Wood is the perfect choice for a cremation urn. 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.
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.
These wood cremation urns feature finely engraved scenes in a walnut frame on the top of the urn. The white maple, when engraved, results in a stunningly contrasted design against the light grain of the natural hardwood urn box. These wooden urns can also be built with a hinged lid and a 3/4″ deep memory chest area on the top of the urn, perfect for letters, photos, jewelry, or other small memorabilia items.
We’ve expanded our companion urn selection to include several of our standard urns that can now be made in the companion or double urn size, usually holding about 400 cubic inches of cremains to accomodate the remains of two individuals.
New to our Dimensional Inlay Series of wood urns are two twists on the classic Road Home scene. Pictured above is our Horse Scene Road Home Urn, in oak, featuring a cowboy on his horse for that final ride home, and below is the same scene with a motorcyclist, pictured in walnut. The entire series of wood urns can be made in your choice of oak or walnut hardwoods.
A companion urn is a timeless way to memorialize the enduring love of an inseperable couple. Also known as a double urn or an urn for two, companion urns make a lasting and beautiful memorial.
The wooden urn box is built to hold the cremains of two individuals in oak, walnut, or maple wood, and can be designed with or without an interior divider. This option allows the couple to choose to have their remains co-mingled inside the urn as a symbol of their unity in life and in death, or, alternately, to keep their ashes separated to represent their individuality while still being united forever in a beautiful companion urn as a token of the depth of their love.
The various scenes for the Companion Urn with 3 Dimensional Scene are crafted using various exotic and domestic hardwoods in their natural colors, cut and laser engraved then inlaid like a 3-D jigsaw puzzle to produce an intricately detailed image with a delightful sense of depth.
The many enchanting scenes available for this double wood urn include:
Idyllic outdoor scenes – A lighthouse against a rocky seacoast, a cowboy riding his trusty horse through the desert towards the setting sun, a farmer riding his tractor home to the farm one last time.
Enchanting animal scenes – An elk in the woods, dolphins leaping through the crest of a wave, a hummingbird or butterfly fluttering near lush flowers.
Bucolic pastime scenes – A rustic cabin nestled against a lake, a golfer finishing his final round, a sailboat rounding the final bend toward shore.
These fine companion urns and many more are available at Urns Northwest. As with most of our wood cremation urns, these double urns can be personalized with laser engraved inscription.
