Locally manufactured on Salt Spring Island, the gem of the Southern Gulf Islands, these beautiful urns are crafted only from locally sourced domestic hardwoods.
Uniquely designed with an opening for the bottom requiring no screws, this enables for an urn with no metal in its construction, a truly natural product. The urns are made from domestically harvested Black Walnut, Cherry, and Hard Maple wood, having a natural finish.
Black Walnut is a dark brown colour with varying tones and nice grain patterns and will age over time to a slightly darker shade, a favorite of cabinet makers.
Cherry is a wood that ages beautifully, it is known for its durability and rich colour which can vary from reddish to dark brown.
Hard Maple is a very dense hardwood with a nice creamy colour and subtle but distinct grain patterns. As with most woods it will slightly darken over time. A hard and very durable wood.
Each urn is hand-made using a square joint called a ‘box joint’, a very strong and visually appealing joint often used in cabinet making. The bottom arm is a feature unique to these urns, which allows them to be opened easily while also keeping the contents safe and secure.
