American chestnut funerary urn handcrafted by Chris Ditlow

Chris Ditlow has been crafting items for the benefit of our Chapter for many years. With his business he specializes in wood engraving. This past Fall he donated this unique Funerary Urn, which he crafted using American chestnut from a 19th-century barn in York County, PA. The box is topped with birdseye maple. Other woods were used to inlay the American flag on the top. The box can be opened by unscrewing the base panel.

Tickets can be purchased at the PA Farm Show in Harrisburg on January 4-11th or at our Spring Growers Meeting on Saturday, March 21.
