Re: Just finished # 8

Very nice! Are there laws or cemetery rules about size and materials you have to use? Just curious

Re: Just finished # 8

You can be buried in a cardboard casket if you want. Most cemeteries require a concrete outer vault mostly so you don't have a cave in when the casket desinigrates. Also in some places near rivers a vault is required to lessen the chance of upheaval and floating away. There are lots of places that will allow direct burial.
About the only law I'm aware of is you need 3' dirt above the burial. Worked in a church cemetery for 2 years in between maintenance jobs. Kind of a creepy job but you are your own boss out there ,not much feedback from the customers.

I don't think it would fit me. I'm too long and too deep.

You know, there is a big move on to get away from the jacked up cost of Chinese made caskets. I deeply regret I didn't make these for my two sons. I just couldn't do it.

Re: Just finished # 8 and #9

The cross was stained with strong coffee. That gave it a nice color against the raw pine top. All "eco-green", with four pegs to align and secure the top.
