When ordering in advance there are numerous ways you can personalize your coffin. You can choose the type of wood, stain, fabric lining, and handles to get the exact look you want.
Some things we have done in the past to customize a coffin include adding a cross to the lid, putting a picture on the inside of the lid, and adding a shelf for keepsakes on the inside of the lid for viewing.
We have also personalized the linings by using a specific fabric, like denim or camouflage, using a treasured quilt, or adding pockets to the lining for special items.
Have a favorite tree or other wood that has special meaning to you? Another way to personalize your coffin is to supply the wood yourself. In the past, we have had people bring in wood from a special tree and another had church pews from their old church that was being remodled. We are able to dry and machine the wood and use it in their coffin. If you have an idea, we would love to hear it.
