My husband and I have decided...

Jean O from Liberty, TX Posted March 26, 2009
My husband and I have decided to be buried the day we die. We want to bypass the undertaker and leave the money for our heirs. They can have a memorial service after that. I hate to see the undertaker drive a Mercedes and my son driving a Volkswagon. The quality of the coffin would be in the hands of the carpenter. Our son is a good cabinet maker. I carried him 9 months in my womb; surely he can build something for my tomb. Billy Graham's wife Ruth was buried in the same type coffin built by prisoners and it was beautiful. I find no fault with the book. I think it is great and my son likes it and he knows his stuff.

I found this very basic, yet informational. When dealing with products like this you have to add your own flair, I have never made a product strictly from the plans on anything! Every woodworker has to have his own style and touch much like an artist painting a picture. Would reccommend the product to anyone seeking information. But remember its just a design....Make it yours!

Guest from Chardon, OH Posted April 3, 2008
The plan itself was good but I had some difficulty with my craftsmanship. It is embarassing to say that I accidentally nailed it to my wife's hardwood floors in the kitchen. Why I was working on it in the kitchen to begin with is another story. Anyhow, I couldn't get it apart in time and we had dinner guests over. My wife tried to intercept them before they reached the door but her friend looked in and saw the coffin and screamed bloody murder. We talked them into coming inside eventually and I actually sat on the coffin while we ate. It was awkward but funny. Later that night my kid actually slept in the coffin. We put a little pillow for him in there and everything. We got him good later though when we nailed the top down (around 2am.) He woke up in a rage. Banging on that lid like a husband that sees the milkman's wagon parked in the driveway too long. Anyhow, plans worked out good and I would use the site again.
