Bill will take each student, step-by-step through the processes of knife sharpening and holding, pattern layout, and how to make the essential two and three sided cuts (chips). For those with prior experience, he'll cover "free form" designs (leaves, flowers, etc.), grid work, and lettering.

Burial Urns for Veterans

A COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT OF ncwoodworker.net


The BURIAL URNS FOR VETERANS PROJECT, was initiated in 2015, here in North Carolina. The purpose of the project, is to insure every veteran, whose cremains are interred, in any State, or National Cemetery in North Carolina, is provided with a quality wooden burial urn.


When it was learned that many veterans cremains, were being interred in cardboard boxes, and in other even less honorable containers in North Carolina Veterans Cemeteries, members of ncwoodworker.net, banded together, to make, and provide, free of charge, wooden burial urns.

Families of veterans who arrive at any of our N.C. State or National Veterans Cemeteries, bringing the cremains of a veteran for internment there, need only ask at the cemetery office prior to the time of internment, and a burial urn will be provided, free of charge, for your veteran's cremains. The cemetery staff may assist you in placing the ashes in the urn.

ncwoodworker.net members are proud to be able to provide this final act of respect and honor to those men and women, who have so selflessly, served our great nation to preserve our freedom.
