Materials List for Mausoleum Project

Tools:
table saw
meter saw
drill
box knife style razor cutter (for styrofoam)
tape measure
metal straight edge (for cutting straight lines)

Materials List:

12 1x4x8 boards (look through the stacks at your local lumber store for straight boards with few knots

1 lb. box 1 5/8" wood screws (this will be more than you need, but better to have too many)

6-8 3/4"x 4'x8' sheets of styrofoam ( I can't give a specific number because you may want to do something different with the sides or face of your mausoleum. For my own, I think I used 8 pieces of 3/4" pill styrofoam)

1 jug Titebond II All weather Wood Glue ( This is my personal choice of all weather wood glue, but most white glues will work)

Additional Materials:
You will need the finishing materials you desire. Ornamentation, paint, textures, etc..


If anyone has questions please post them in the students thread.
Thank You
Muffy

Welcome everyone!!!

Okay, welcome anyone?

Anyone out there interested in making a great looking mausoleum for around $200?

This is a great spring or summer project as it may be a bit too big (or tall) for some garages.

I will be here to answer any questions and give out loads of practical knowledge and lessons learned.
