Here's the help you need for one of life's most critical undertakings - making your own coffin. Author and craftsman Dale Power revisits one of his most popular woodworking projects with additional embellishment, adding finery and fancy to what could easily become your final resting place. Easily, that is, since, more than 230 colour photos and detailed instructions have been provided to help guide you step-by-step toward your own casket. This project might truly be your life's finest accomplishment. The installation of working coffin hardware, both exterior and interior, is explored and the proper application of finishes and linings are explained.
