Marina is a turned wood box with a lid that I made on my lathe. I handmade the bowl from sweet gum wood and the lid is spalted flaming box elder with a hand-carved walnut wood finial. All woods are responsibly sourced from here in Central Kentucky.
This piece was purchased as a wood pet urn for a very beloved family dog. As some who adores her furry family, the notion that one of my pieces is commemorating a beloved family pet is very special to me.
Without the lid, this wood pet urn measures 4″ wide, 2-1/4″ tall, and 1-3/4″ deep. With the lid (including the finial), the bowl is 5-1/4″ tall and 4-1/2″ wide. I finished all of the woods on this turned wood box with a lid with high friction polish to bring out the natural color, grain, and tone. Finally, I include care instructions with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
