The Mahogany Cremation Urn with Cross is perfectly adorned with a deep, rich cross carved into the mahogany wood. The simplicity of the cross carving gives the urn a sense of balanced elegance, and the placement of the design leaves plenty of room for a personalized inscription or epitaph to the right of the cross engraving.

Q: Will this urn last? Doesn't wood biodegrade?
A: Yes, wood is a natural material and under the right conditions it will biodegrade over time. However, our wooden urns are built to the same high standards of quality as premium heirloom furniture. The wood is genuine and cut very thick, constructed using time-tested methods and finished with a lovely stain that hightlights the wood grain and preserves the entire piece. Just as antique wood items can last for hundreds of years, passed down from one generation to the next, this mahogany cremation urn is fashioned in our shop to become an heirloom antique. So long as minimal care and maintenance is performed (regular dusting, kept away from water and/or direct sunlight, major temperature fluctuations avoided, etc), this memorial will last as an heirloom for generations to come.
Q: How does Mahogany wood compare to other types of wood?
A: Mahogany wood is incredibly durable and resistant to warping. This is due to its characteristic straight, uniform grain and minimal amount of "soft grain", which is the wood inbetween the grain lines. This is one of the major reasons why mahogany is a popular wood choice favored by premium furniture and musical instrument makers.
Q: How are the remains placed into the urn?
A: The base is removed quite easily using an everyday standard screwdriver. Simply filp the urn over, remove the four screws attaching the base panel, and place the remains inside. The funeral home or crematorium will have put the remains in a plastic bag, inside of a temporary plastic or cardboard box. All you need to do is open the temporary container, pull out the bag and place it into the mahogany urn, then re-attach the base. For a video demonstration of a similar wood urn being opened, see the "Product Videos" tab above.
Q: I'm not comfortable transfering the remains. What do I do?
A: Usually the funeral home will happily transfer the remains for you. They're required by law to use the container of your choice, even one that you provide. If you order an urn online and it arrives a few weeks later, they're generally pretty nice about allowing you to bring in the remains along with the urn and transfering the ashes for you. Another option is to ask a friend or family member to do it for you.
