Natural pine casket constructed for a customer who is planning ahead. This will go into storage hopefully for a few years. I’ve detailed some of the steps and have more pictures of the build process on my personal site blog -http://www.victorycoffin.com/blog

I know how you feel, I load test each one I make for at least 300 pounds. The very first one I made and used was for my uncle and I was one of the pallbearers.

Seems like it would be a great honor to be selected to build a final rest for someone.

how well do you trust the pocket screw joinery for sides of the casket? Do you experience any bowing of the walls when loaded that would risk the floorboards falling out?

It’s proven itself over and over again, so I trust it pretty well. I use glue on the joints as well of course. To avoid the bowing in the walls I glued the center bottom board in place just in case. But honestly the sides are rigid enough to withstand bowing and once the lid is locked in place that helps too.
