Welcome to Simple Wood Urn. We invite you to browse through our store and shop with confidence. Our hope is to give you options in selecting a beautiful, hand-made wooden urn at an affordable price. Each of our urns is made by hand in Costa Rica by a family of woodworking craftsmen. We strive to use only sustainably produced wood for our urns. We think you will find the simple beauty of our urns the perfect compliment to the life remembered. Any urn purchased through Simple Wood Urn will be accepted at the Funeral Home or Cremation Service that you are using. This is mandated by the federal government through the Funeral Rule of the FTC Regulations. It is, however, a good practice to let the funeral director know that you will be furnishing the urn. If you feel uncomfortable doing this, please, let us know and we will be happy to do it for you. If you plan on traveling with an urn, keep the disposition permit with the urn. You will want to let the airlines know that you have the urn with you if you will be transporting it in your checked baggage. Since 9/11 TSA must x-ray all baggage and because of this a wood urn is the best choice. This will avoid the need to open the urn for inspection as the wood can be x-rayed without problems. All of our urns are a fine choice for scattering following a memorial service since they open from the bottom with four screws (except for the heart and chest, that have no closing devices). The urn that you choose will also be a good for a mausoleum or columbarium since our urns fit most niche requirements but make sure to check with the cemetery office regarding the size of your niche. For ground burial you will want to check what requirements the cemetery has regarding vaults for urns prior to purchasing any urn. We feel that our urns are the best choice to honor the values of the person that chose to live the "natural lifestyle" and wish to carry on that choice to the next destination.
