A “simple pine box” of great importance. Well done indeed.

Nice coffin. Are they made to order?
How much does it weigh?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks. They can be made to order but at the moment I make some and keep an inventory. I’m guessing between 125 – 150 lbs for weight but I’ve never actually weighed it. I have load tested it up to 400+ lbs however.

Very nice looking project. I like your website as well. My friend recently directed a movie about Green Burials, and the Green Burial Movement. It’s called “A Will for the Woods.” You should check it out; I think your coffins would dovetail nicely with this industry. See the trailer at awillforthewoods.com

I would like to someday be buried in a casket like this one (hopefully a while from now).

Thanks! I will check out the trailer for sure. I would also recommend the book ’Grave Matters’ by Mark Harris for anyone interested in the subject. Very interesting and eye opening read.
