I'm looking for fabricators to turn items like these into repurposed urns. These pics came from a recent visit to the Rose Bowl Flea Market, and are just a small example of items that could possibly be repurposed into urns. I realize some of these items might be impractical, but with a little imagination and ingenuity others could work. I'm personally excited for a punch clock urn : )
Here are the standard urn requirements: 1) must hold 200-250 cubic inches, which comes out to about 6 pounds; 2) must be air and water tight; 3) if it's opened widely, it should be lined and perhaps padded. I'm looking for a fabricator who can work with wood, metal, or both. The item can either retain its original look, or there could be a few artistic flourishes.
Please contact me if you're interested in working with me on this at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although I don't have these exact items, these pics should give you an idea of how wide the concept of an urn can be. Thanks to all!
Lunch boxes could easily work, especially the larger sizes.
A jewelry box like this could be hollowed out beneath, and the top could be used to keep personal mementos.
