This urn is made from a beautifully figured piece of Roasted Curly Maple which has a spectacular undulating chatoyant pattern. Bloodwood and Bird's Eye Maple bands and Bubinga dowels provide the accents on the top. No stains or dyes have been used. The rich colours that you see are the natural colours of the finished woods.
