    I think I can handle the box, and make a flat lid, but how do you make the curvy lid for more coffin like authenticity?

    You know, I really want a 18th centurty coffin... anyway, I just didnt want to deal with all the angles

    Anyway, any casket building tips, just lemme know

    probably goingto have to steam the crap out of the wood and use a drum or some thing to curve it around and something to hole the ends down while it dries. Saw something like this for boat making. the wood was steamed for quite a while and it cooled really quick. Or just start with a really big piece of wood(read:tree) and use a planer on it. probably take a long, long time, but it might get there. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    yeah, steam the wood and make something out of rebar in the ground to get the curve..

    I think an 18th century look would probably be the boxy cuts look rather than the modern curved piece.

    Yeah I know, it migth be easier to make a modern casket, but I would just love an 18th century flared out side one, the body shaped one.

    Flat black with a big read gothic cross on it.

    I know what you mean I definetally say go for the body shape coffin, what I meant was the lid. Modern lids are the bent wood circle type, classic is just cut wood pieced to form a lid. I don't mean flat lid either, if I were to do it it would be a nice raised lid. Damn its hard to explain, I will draw a picture in paint quickly.... I need to start doing some wood working again, all I do is metal anymore, metal is easier and has more range but there is an eerie warmth in wood I miss.

    OH MY GOD ITS 20 RUPEES! I'M EXTATIC! I CAN NOW BUY A BOW TO DEFEAT THE EVIL GANONDORF!

    Anyway, I get the idea. I have medium carpentry skills, but that looks pretty hard, compound angles and such

    i think those angles should be much easier to make than rounding wood without really knowing how to do it. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Yeah thats why I was thinking just make it out of like metal and weld it, only has to be close enough, then sheet it with wood /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I miss Zelda, but I refuse to buy new systems, they change so much and crap its pointless, but thats another thread.

    My mom wants to be a step up from you... Just any wood box will do... screw a hearse, just stick the box in the back of her pickup if it's still running by then... and if the bed isn't so rusty nothing will go in it /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    but.... knowing my siblings, that won't be the way... but whatever... they can pay for it, I'll say some good words and forward the bill to my brother /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
