Wood Urns -- A Natural Choice
A traditional material for cremation urns, wood can be engraved easily for a personalized tribute to a loved one. Available in a variety of wood types (walnut, maple, bamboo, etc.) as well as a wide range of finishes, wood urns display natural elegance as part of a memorial service or a home tribute to a loved one. These cremation urns for ashes are also suitable for burial, and some are made specifically as niche urns.
The options for personalization on wood urns are very flexible -- often including direct engraving and artwork to reflect personality and interests.
The natural wood grain and warm colors of the wood are enhanced by the added engraving. Engraved brass plates are another attractive way to memorialize a loved one and can be placed on most wood urns.
Offered in a range of styles and finishes with many custom options, wooden urns are simple to care for. Tips for wooden urn care include:
- Regular dusting with a soft cloth or duster
- Occasional use of furniture polish or wax -- as you would clean your wooden furniture
- For a deeper clean, use warm water and a mild dish soap to wipe dirt from the surface of the urn, followed by a soft, dry cloth to remove excess water.
