This is a casket for a little girl. It’s 1600 mm x 450 mm x 300 mm (about 5’3” x 1’6” x 1’), and is made of clear cedar.
The bottom is a panel fitted into a dado; the corner joints are splined miters (sorry, I didn’t get pictures). I made the splines out of slats from the same girl’s crib.
The top is a simple panel, with reed molding around. There is a second panel applied to the main lid, with hand-painted Australian flowers and an applied cedar cross with a simple mitered center.
This was simultaneously the most hellish and most satisfying project I have ever undertaken.
Thanks for looking.
