Wooden urns are the most popular type of cremation urns. When used for funeral urns (ash urns chosen primarily for their appearance at memorial services), wood lends a warm luster and offers a particular sense of stability and comfort. Even within the same style of urn, wooden urns are unique in that variations in the wood-grain patterns of each piece changes the look and feel of the urn. Colors and textures of wooden urns vary, as well. Further, the finish applied to wood cremation urns can alter its appearance. Choose a semi-gloss finish or a satin finish to achieve to look you desire. You may also select wooden urns with a variety of stains – ranging from light pine to deep mahogany.
Because wood is a renewable resource, wooden cremation urns are a natural choice for the ecologically conscious – and a loved one’s environmental wishes should certainly be honored. Even used as burial urns (and not displayed on a mantel or elsewhere within the family home), wooden urns are a durable and long-lasting way to memorialize a departed loved one.
Wooden cremation urns may be easily carved or engraved, so you may personalize your final tribute to your loved one.
Some types of wood urns adapt to stains or engraving better than others. For instance, the prominent grain patterns in oak generally do not take well to a dark stain. Another factor to consider is that wooden urns with dark grains may not accept laser imaging as well as lighter-grained wooden urns. But if you prefer a strong grain pattern, oak cremation urns may be the ideal choice.
One wood that takes especially well to a range of stains is cherry. Its grain varies, but the naturally light shade of the wood makes it a good choice for laser engraving. In addition, cherry wood keepsake urns provide a suitable surface for a portrait of a loved one, perfect for creating a cherished memorial.

Autumn Leaves chest arrived this week and I couldn't be more pleased! I can
scarcely believe you are able to offer high quality urns at such low prices;
I've been looking at a lot of them over the past year and no one has been able
to match your prices or varied selection. I didn't fully appreciate what it
would mean to have the chest carved from a single piece of cherry wood, but once
I unwrapped it I was astonished by the workmanship, the simple yet truly elegant
carving, and the beauty of the wood. The urn is for a beloved parent who is
dying, and it is a great comfort to me to have this taken care of and to have a
home memorial that is not only a work of art, but something my mother would have
loved as well. The Funeral Home was surprised at how quickly it arrived and that
it was shipped for free; I will be passing your information along to them for
their future reference.
