FOR MOST it might seem a bit morbid or bizarre, but for students taking courses on how to build your own coffin it is quite natural to be interested in designing your body’s final resting place. And for those who prefer to work at home (and thus avoid the trouble of transporting the finished item) the internet is full of coffin making instructions.
Besides saving a bundle of money (or rather, your relatives’ money), the handcrafted coffin is made according to the size and personality of the owner, as a celebration of his life. It can even make a fantastic piece of home décor! It is not advisable that grandkids bump into grandpa’s or dad’s coffin in the garage, so place it openly in the guest room as an exotic bed, or buy a trendy flowerpot and turn the coffin into just another unorthodox coffee table – a sure-fire conversation piece. Of course, it is also a great Halloween prop.
