Exquisite One-of-a-Kind Granadillo Wood “Tower” Cremation Urn

$ 800.00

This unique and one-of-a-kind wooden cremation urn was handmade by the talented wood turner David Rudin, exclusively for Modern Memorials. The urn is made from solid Granadillo with cherry splines and a removable walnut bottom. It is finished with a shellac sealer and four coats of clear lacquer.

We love this urn because of the meticulous detail Rudin used – it looks like it could be a conversation-starting sculpture or architectural model. Granadillo wood is often referenced as “the wood that sings” because it is the favored wood for many fine instrument makers.
