Coffin Project - 2009 Legend of the Wood

1528 8
This is our latest project in preparation for Halloween 2009. This is a toe pincher coffin that is based on the plans from ScareFX.

This was a cool project that came out very well. It looks very realistic.

Take a look at the side by side comparison to a cardboard coffin that was purchased for $49. The cost to build the wooden coffin was around $40.

Used the same process for a toe pincher I built for 2008, however the lid is made of weathered pallets that I got for free. Taking them apart was a pain as I wanted to preserve the length of the slats and this meant that there was a lot of nail pulling. The old nail holes added to the rustic appearance of the coffin. I'll post some pictures when I get home. The sides and bottom were made out of 1/4" plywood, painted black and really highlights the top and hides my mechanics/pnuematics inside for my pop-up skeleton.
