The size is now evident only to those independently wealthy folks who have the money to drop into one of those Tormeks, so for the rest of us striving to furnish our shops with basic neccessities, how about some reference that the masses can relate to. :)
Nice job, Tom. What'd you do for securing the lid? It'd sure be nice to have one of those fancy wood threaders, or at least a thread chaser and time to develope that aspect when doing projects like that.
Actually, there is no lid. I put the finial up there to look like one but it is solid to the rest of it. I have an access port in the bottom with a rubber friction-fit plug.
The urn is about 12"-tall overall. The walls to within 1" of the top are 3/8 to 1/4"-thick so there is a substantial amount of interior space. Hopefully enough!
For the one I made for my SIL's remains, I made the lid fit at a slightly different angle than the inside of the neck. Since they are not sure whether they are going to distribute the ashes, or seal it, the point where the lid contacts the inside of the neck will allow them to either pour a little glue in for a permanent seal, or some melted parafin for a temporary one.
The Tormek isn't attached, (I didn't think of that....) it's just in the background. first, because it was the first place I could set the urn down with good light (turned out to be a little too much) and second because I could include a tool gloat without having to enter another message.
Other than that, I duno why the Tormek is in there.
I pretty much killed all my stones trying to sharpen my tools. rather than buy new stones I figured getting the right machine for the job was a better idea. I wish I had more ideas that were that right!
Anyway, I got what used to be a 10-inch white stone that is now about 4" and real wobbly if that will help....
