Assembled the unit yesterday evening. Looks out of site !! I noticed a slight problem with the bore centering though. After a good looking over of the cylinder extension drawing and the bore location drawing, I found the problem. I provided Chet with incorrect centering imformation in regards to the placement of the bore from side to side. Chet put it exactly where I had him place it. The top assembly is shifted 1/2" to the left. I'm quite embarressed over this. I had him move the bore 1/4" more than was needed in order to center the cylinder extentions top flange. The assembly has a built in oem engineered shift of the totaled assembled components as it is, and the that would show anyway but my mistake adds more shift than I like. The corrected drawing is below showing my error. In other words, there is 1/2" more wood surface on the right side than there is on the left side. I have a fix for it though. My options are to elongate the bore or come up with something else. Elongating is possible but I would know this. All the mounting holes for the screw fasteners would also have to be relocated. This leaves very little meat for the screws for holding power, due to the fact that the new located fastener holes would be so close to the earlier holes drilled. This makes me more skeptical about using such a fix. Besides, Chet's beautiful work of art and craftsmanship should not be butchered in order to correct my flaw and error. Because of all this, I have decided to go with the altenative fix instead. The alternative fix is to mount a medallion of some type next to the right side of the cylinder extension flange. This medallion will better center the whole assembly in relation to the wooden base. I discussed the type of medallion to use with Curt via telephone. Curt had numerous great ideas. I suggested a cross made from aluminum. Since a cross is normally used to represent a religious symbol, we both agreed Mimi and JC should make that call. Kat called them today and a cross will be fine. I have designed this cross separate from religious affilliation. Like the holding hands theme, having several meanings to different folks, this cross design has only two possible meanings, that I can think of. It can be looked at in a religious context, if so desired, but my intention is to bring to light, and to enhance one of the several themes the urn represents. For Mimi and JC, I believe that theme is JC's hand in Mimi's hand holding their son. Brady was their only child, a son. My cross design is intented to represent "ONLY BEGOTTEN SON" I already roughed the cross out and will finish it up tomorrow. Curt advised me to bring this to your attention for further imput. I need to know what you folks think ? There is no need for you all to answer just yet. Allow me to post a couple of pics before you make your thoughts known. I'll put one up without the cross and one with it. Should have them posted by Sunday for you all to view.
