gfadvm…the funeral home was actually the one to ask whether she knew a woodworker. Their only requirement was that it had to be loaded from the bottom so the case sits on the base and is attached to cleats. I never made one of these things before and much of it involved thinking on the fly about the assembly. The half-blind dovetails cost me a lot of grief but for some reason I felt the need to do it. Thanks for the nice comment!

pauldoug…I’m going the cremation route (I don’t think it should hurt me). I think the casket thing with grave-site services is the worst part of somebody’s “passing”. My in-laws are devoted RC and I was actually surprised that they had both decided on the cremation route. I did cringe a bit though today when the priest hit the box with that holy water wand though (I whispered to my wife that we would have to apply another coat of wax or two…it’s been a long week for her and I was glad to make her laugh).
