This was a joint effort with me and Hayden a good friend…. We were asked to make a full sized coffin for a halloween prop for a themed party

the Living Dead. Which is werid because halloween is not really that big here in NZ. Had a lot of fun doing making with a friend.

Nighthawk: We start to make coffin this weekend?

Hayd3n: Yup. Do I need to bring anything?

Nighthawk: Jigsaw and anything you think that would help.

Hayd3n: A body?

Nighthawk: Only if it is the living dead and knows how to make a coffin.

Hayden: LOL

three Cross were cut and glued on to the lid and sides

Gluinga nd clamping on the crosses. Made from a recycled free standing wardrobe. I saved as much wood and pieces as I could from it.

One dones have to test these things out you know…

Welcome to Lumberjocks, nice looking coffin you made, are those crosses supposed to keep the living
dead quiet so you can sleep at nights? Is Drysdale still playing with motorcycles down under, have not
heard anything new out of them for a while? Thank you for sharing.

Abby would love it. I think she has one of her own to sleep in. Nice job. You could probably sell it for a good price. Coffins at a funeral home are terribly expensive!
