My husband and I have decided...
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. 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!

A very simple rendition of a "how to" book. Good for beginners, but too basic for anyone beyond. I don't recommend this book for the simple reason you can get as much information from a picture.

I think the book is amateurish, incomplete,useless and the drawings might have been done by a second grader.

I was not impressed with this book. The plans are not complete and you are left to guess with much of it. Plus the coffins themselves are not that great style-wise. I returned it.

Does this item explain about the interior make up????
Darel on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It does have about one paragraph instructing you to staple the batting into place. Then staple the satin lining in place. And that light sewing is required to make a pillow.
The easy to build wood casket plans also sold by Rockler, states you can take your finished product to an upholsterer. They also describe installing 1/4" plywood with double sided tape and spray glue. So, yes, but it could be more in depth. I hope this helps you.
