When it comes to wooden cremation urns you will find us very knowledgeable in all aspects of creating a premier cremation urn. From the selection and matching of complementing wood grain and color to dovetailed joinery and hand-rubbed finish.
The artistry in all of the hand-cast fine pewter that adorns each wooden cremation urn is our own creation. We sculpt the first pieces in clay and then build a master mold. From our master mold, we produce the first metal parts. Next, we construct a production mold. Only when these steps are completed can we begin to cast parts for our ash urns. FINISHING FINE PEWTER: Wooden Cremation Urns Before these parts can be used on our beautiful wooden cremation urns the flashing must be trimmed, and 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 our cremation Urns.CLOSURE SYSTEM: Wood Cremation Urns
Unlike most wooden funeral urns you will notice our beautifully handcrafted unique human cremation urns have a unique closure system called a Spanish windlass. It is a centuries-old method of securing things, capable of applying thousands of pounds of force.

We are a family-owned business, handcrafting cremation urns in the countryside of southeast Wisconsin. Bruce and Lucinda Kiefer started designing and handcrafting high-quality solid wood office furniture in 1984. Words that denote a cremation urn built by the Kiefer's: Heirloom quality, Handcrafted, Integrity, and a commitment to producing the finest wood urns.
The business of creating cremation urns found us, not the other way around. Bruce wrote a poem titled "The Keep It Box" The poem grew from an awareness that most treasured memories reside in a small box or drawer. We never thought of it as a wood urn. We began to build solid cherry wood boxes, with the poem engraved on a pewter plate, which we attached to the lid. Part of the poem states "This is the place where memories live" We found that many people were buying our Keep it boxes as a cremation urn. A cremation urn, we were so profoundly touched and honored by the knowledge that our creations are chosen to hold such precious memories. Cremation urns grew to business from there. Wood urns are warm to the touch. Each of our cremation urns has a hand-rubbed finish. Our goal is that the completed cremation urn be a work of art.
The Mood Wood cremation urns have a unique closure system, see our video.
In days gone by every town and village had Americans building things to be used, which stood the test of time. Today, many cremation urns are cheap things made only to sell. Mass-produced in foreign countries, delivered by the container load.
We at Mood Wood prefer the business model of days gone by. Using the skills acquired through a lifetime of diligent work, and the highest quality materials, to produce handcrafted solid wood urns. Our goal; to create a cremation urn in artistry that reflects your most treasured memories.
