Western Style Burial Urns
This western style urn was created at the request of a friend of mine that operates a funeral home. He has several suppliers that distribute your normal vase and box style urns however this was a special request.
The deceased was a huge western movie fan and the family felt it appropriate that his final wish be honored. Boot Hill comes to mind.
The urn is a replica of the full size version as shown in many movies and books. The proportions between the upper and lower halves were the toughest to work out. I built the urn out of pine which I’m sure was the material used back in the day. It would be easy to work and readily available. Although the situation is not the most pleasant, the project was a lot of fun to build.
