There are other urns available elsewhere from many suppliers, some in real woods, some in simulated wood products. None are significantly less in cost and usually higher than LovedPet® Custom Urns.


Select the Best.


The woods at LovedPet® are all natural, solid wood (no veneers with the exception of our Eco~Urn™ Series), clear grained, kiln dried, individually selected by us for their warmth, strength, beauty and compatibility with our laser engravers. These combine to create an everlasting tribute to Your Pet. It is what Your Pet deserves and what you will want.


As with each of our urns, a concealed panel at the base is firmly sealed with screws creating an air tight receptacle resistant to moisture. The finish complements the color, grain, and texture of the wood, sometimes in the subtlety of matte, sometimes in a gloss.


 

Since wood is a natural creation, its colors and grains do vary so our photographs are only for comparison with each other and may not exactly match your urn.
We often use maple as the laser engraved insert for our Oak urns since there is less intrusion from the wood’s natural grain.

Cherry (Prunus serotina)

Cherry is a hardwood but, oh, so soft to the touch, and warming to the feel.It is light to dark reddish brown in hue, with a straight grain. Cherry, which comes to us primarily from the Eastern United States, is another of our prized natural wonders often selected for the beauty of the wood, itself. It is as pleasing to the touch, as its fruit to the taste. Since it also has a tight grain it accepts laser engraving with most photographs becoming works of breathtaking art.

Oak (Quercus spp.)

This is the hardest and some say most beautiful wood we use, milled from naturally fallen old growth giants lying in their natural state in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern United States. The grain is mostly irregular with a pronounced pattern. The finished wood polishes out to a light greyish brown, almost umber glow, sometimes with a tinge of red. While the wood is gorgeous it is not recommended for laser engraving since the pronounced grain may slightly distort an image.Maple (Acer sachararum) The Sugar Maple, as sweet as the name suggests,comes to us from Eastern Canada and the Eastern United States. It is a very hard wood, almost as dense as oak, creamy in complexion, with a light reddish-brown tint. Its grain can be curly, wavy, or the much coveted Birdseye. A pleasure to behold, a pleasure to hold. It is the best wood for engraving photographs and depictions as the grain is small and tight.

Walnut (Juglans nigra)

The wood of the tree is the ultimate fruit of the tree, another majestic offering from the east coasts of Canada and the United States. Its color ranges from light to dark brown, with an irregular and very pleasing grain. It too is a hard wood, almost as hard as oak and maple. It is very durable. and polishes to a high finish. It is often used for electric guitar bodies, as well as high quality furniture, and cabinetry.

Mahogany (Swietenia m.)

Mahogany finds its way to us from Honduras and Africa. A heavy hardwood, it is reddish-brown in color, with a very straight grain. Tall, lean and firm, this wood makes an excellent receptacle for those who prefer an exotic wood. Handcrafted, it finishes into a strikingly beautiful enhancement of any wood art form. The rain forests are being struck down without regard to replenishment, however, and even as you read this great mahogany giants are being logged illegally, and sent to markets in Europe and elsewhere, to be crafted into furniture and other building materials. While relatively little is used in the crafting of an urn, we will use the stock we have on hand, but will order no more. If you have an interest in mahogany, please consider a pre-need order.
