    Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    I know very little has been said lately about our Burial Urns Project, but it is alive and well and moving forward. We do get requests for burial urns on a regular basis, and I want to commend Jack (Skymaster) , Reggie (JackLeg), and Raymond (Raymond), for their dedication to making the project function and flow smoothly. The project is permanently featured as a benefit, on the NC American Legion web page, and also established with the NC Veterans Cemeteries. These men have carried the load, and helped to make NCVWW the great organization it is; my hat is off to these 3 giant people. (Yes Jack, I called you a giant!) We all want to thank all the rest of you for your great support in making this program possible. It is an honor for us to do this in honor of those who have offered their personal service to our great nation, in the name of freedom.

    Re: Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    Here's a new member of NCWW (tdukes) and he's making some pet memorial boxes (urns) that look very similar to our burial urns. Do we have real plans available that Skymaster, JackLeg, and Raymond are using to make the boxes?

    https://urnsnw.com/boston-ii-companion-urn/

    I asked him to contact you directly but I don't know if he's done that. He's having trouble with locked miters and I thought that our design uses locked miters also. Maybe there's some collective wisdom we can share with him.

    Locked miters can be tricky, but Skymaster has "mastered" them on his shaper. I cut my blanks just a little long to enable me to clean them up if neeeded. What say you, Skymaster?

    Good looking urns!

    Re: Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    Thank you for all the compliments but it is a group effort. To me the "secret" to lock miters is a good router table and lift. A shaper is basically an industrial router table much bigger motor,table etc. STABILITY is the key. I will contact the new guy and try to help him out.

    I created the plans and I believe they are here available to download. They were, anyway.

    Re: Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    I found the Burial Urn Plans (see link below); however, this plan is for the 10" x 12" burial urn and not the new one measuring 9" x 9" x 9".

    https://www.ncwoodworker.net/forums/...p?do=cat&id=17

    I could not find the plan for the new design.

    Re: Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    Raymond, way back in February I revised the plan for the 9 x 9 version and sent them off to Jack (I think) or was it Bruce? In any case, I've uploaded it. This should be the link:

    Re: Burial Urns For Veterans Project

    I was able to view the link last night, but like Rich, i now get an invalid link when trying to go to the plans.

    has there been any discussions on having a workshop for others to help out with building of the urns?

    Thank you Scott, I am humbled by your words. Truth is, due to physical limitations over the past couple of years, I have had the great privilege of Jack, Reggie, and Raymond stepping up to the plate and helping to carry the load. It is truly a team effort; when a request for an urn came up and it was needed immediately, others have also stepped up to help, like Phil Soper who once put an urn together and delivered it, and there are others whom I forget because of time and memory. This whole project is far to big for one person, and couldn't have happened without the help of all of you. There are other similar programs in other parts of the country, but no where on the scale of our project. So folks, every one of you should take a moment to reflect, and give yourself a huge pat on the back for making this another big reason that North Carolina Woodworkers is the very best woodworkers organization in the world!
