This Medium Cremation Urn is made out of True Rosewood ( Dalbergia Sissoo) that is grown in managed forests to manage the resource. The wood is very hard compared with Koa and almost twice as heavy. The strength of Rosewood is one of its major characteristics as the wood is used throughout the world where strength is desired, like furniture and cane shafts. With out a doubt the wood has all the appearance of strength and nobility.
The Small Rosewood Urn for sale here is approximately 5 inches wide by 4 3/8 inches deep by 5 1/2 inches high. This will comfortably hold ashes from a 70 pound person or animal. To fill: the bottom of the urn is removed, a plastic bag is put in the hole and the ashes (which will be in another plastic bag) are poured in then sinched up with a twist or zip tie. Then the wooden bottom is simply screwed back on. Your ashes (bag) may be small enough to fit in the hole without having to do this. The Urn is covered with a precatalyzed semi-gloss lacquer finish.
US Priority Mail shipping will be $ 10.00 for this Urn.

The Urn can be laser engraved directly into the wood or a brass plate can be mounted on one side. NOTE: I am not set up to do engraving myself as I don't have the equipment but if you are in Honolulu I can advise you where you can get the engraving done.
Ships by US Priority Mail to all States.

I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.
I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.
