Coffin Building Workshop
with Chuck Lakin
Ever thought about building your own coffin? If so, here’s your chance to do your heirs a favor. After all, there’s only one other thing besides taxes that you can count on. During this workshop we will help you build a coffin. We’ll provide the material, the tools, and the guidance you’ll need. The basic design will be pretty much a plain pine box, but you’ll have a number of choices within that basic design: Straight or flared sides? Rough-cut or finished wood? Assembled with or without any metal fasteners. Imagine the fun you’ll have going to work on Monday, just waiting for the first person to ask how you spent your weekend. The cost of the workshop includes all coffin materials and expert guidance in the assembly process. Please note: we will need you to let us know your height, width at the shoulders and depth lying down (highest point may well be the feet)--this is in order to have the pieces cut to fit. You may email those along with your name to email@example.com
