Here is a little coffin box I made for my wife. She is a Halloween fanatic so I surprised her with this box. It’s only 8” long & 2 3/4” high. The main box is made out of pine with bloodwood trim. I lined the inside with red felt. She just loves it, and is now searching for a little skeleton or Dracula to put in it. This was a personal challenge for me as I have not made many boxes with multiple angles. I hope you like it. Happy woodworking!

This is pretty authentic looking. It reminds me of the old Dracula films. Nicely done!

I’m glad you and your wife are still together.

I thought this web site is where you were headed when I saw the post.
