To many, pets or service animals are more than just dogs, cats, or other species, they are love and cherished companions that in many cases are part of the family. So when a beloved animal dies, it can be as devastating to its owner as the loss of a human family member. Mood Wood, manufacturer of the highest quality, hand crafted, wooden cremation urns, recognizes the impact pets can have upon their owners and has expanded its product line to include six models of memorial pet cremation urns for the ash remains of pets.
Like its full line of human cremation urns, Mood Wood’s pet urns are constructed of the finest select grade cherry (no veneer) that is carefully chosen and matched for complementing wood grain and color. All pet urns are constructed with dovetailed joinery and coated with a hand rubbed finish. The artistry in all of the hand cast fine pewter that adorns each wooden cremation urn is Mood Wood’s own creation. They sculpt the first pieces in clay, and then build a master mold that is used to produce the first metal parts. Next they construct a production mold. The custom made pewter is produced and the flashing must be trimmed, with each piece filed by hand. Then the metal is oxidized. The next process is to tumble the parts in a medium of crushed walnut shells. The final step is applying a clear satin finish to each casting, to prevent tarnishing of the metal that enhances the pet cremation urns.
The handcrafted pet urns offer the same unique closure systems as Mood Wood’s human urns. Unlike traditional wooden urns on the market, Mood Wood’s handcrafted cremation urns feature a unique locking mechanism known as a Spanish windlass. This closure system has been utilized for centuries and is able to apply thousands of pounds of force.
“For over 25 years the craftsmen at Mood Wood have been creating one-of-a-kind wood products, so pet owners, pet breeders, and all animal lovers can now also be confident in our expertise and the quality of their purchase,” noted Bruce Kiefer, owner of Mood Wood. “Every detail of each handcrafted pet urn is designed and constructed by experienced craftsmen, all of the way down to the metal furnishings.”
Mood Wood is a family owned business, handcrafting its wooden cremation urns in the countryside of southeast Wisconsin. Bruce and Lucinda Kiefer started designing and handcrafting high quality solid wood office furniture in 1984 and later found a calling to create cherry wood cremation urns, which have been described as heirloom quality, handcrafted with integrity and a commitment to producing the finest wood urns.
