My new job was to saw the lid from the box. The ashes were sealed in
thick plastic, so I had no worries of loose ashes spilling. Because
the lid had an overhang, I would have to apply double stick tape
around the base of the box near the bottom edges in order to make the
cut on a table saw. This task seemed tedious and risky, so I decided

marks on the lid and the top of the box, but I could not have been
more pleased on how well the job went.
