NATURAL ALL-WOOD COFFINS
PRESS ARTICLE: Weatherford Democrat
We offer a pine box coffin in the traditional, tapered shape. The tapered shape is sometimes referred to as a “toe pincher” coffin.
The Boot Hill style coffin is constructed completely of furniture grade pine, supplied from environmentally responsible sources. This coffin does not contain any particle board, plywood, chipboard, or fiber board, or veneers..
Our coffins are designed and fabricated using time proven woodworking techniques such as dadoes, miters, as well as dowelled and glued joints. There are no screws, nails, or metal fasteners of any type; thus, making the coffin completely eco-friendly and perfect for green burial. It is also an excellent choice for cremation and for Orthodox burial.
Our coffins have been constructed by hand and sanded furniture smooth. No oils, varnishes, or finishes are used that may harm the environment. Standard interior dimensions exceed 6’6” in length and 25” in width. Interior depth will accommodate western style boots exceeding size 12, as well as western hats. The coffin has been weight tested up to 400 pounds. An oversized model is available as well as three sizes for children.
The Half-Couch Coffin has a divided lid. This will allow the upper part of the lid to be removed for viewing similar to a two piece lid on a conventional casket.
It's shown at right with two soldiers from the Army Honor Guard stationed in Oklahoma who stopped by for a visit. These two young men are part of the group that see to it that our soldiers that are lost are brought home with honor.
Any of our coffins may be stained and finished if requested. Finish colors may be selected from an array of choices.
