After my father-in-law,Ford, passed, my wife’s family wanted me to make a box for his beautiful urn.
This is Ford’s Box.
He was an out-going man that enjoyed the outdoors.His passion was hunting and trips with the boys to their cabin in central Newfoundland.
He had 3 children, 1 boy and 2 girls and 6 grand-daughters
I decided to carve his cabin on the top of the box. On each side, are pictures of a rabbit and a moose which he enjoyed to hunt. On the front of the box, are 6 butterflies. Each one is a symbol of each grand-daughter with their initials on the wings of each butterfly. In the bottom corner is a heart and a large butterfly. His wife’s initial on the heart(V) and on the butterflies wings are his children’s initials (Q, M & S).
