Spalted Hackberry Pet Urn
By Mike Stafford

For: Intermediate Turners

Introduction

The death of a beloved pet is a great loss to those who loved the animal.  Such was the case when my shop dog, a feisty Cairn terrier named Taffy died.   Taffy spent many years with me in the shop serving as my advisor and guard dog keeping watch over me.  During the summer she would lay on the deck outside the shop in the shade of overhanging trees.  In the winter she would find a sunny spot on the concrete floor, usually in the biggest pile of chips in the shop and while away the day with me.  Only when I stopped working would she move from her chosen rest area and join me on my bench to discuss design opportunities.  She was a loyal watch dog and my biggest fan. She was always a good dog.  After her passing it only seemed appropriate to turn an urn for her final resting place.
