Oak Lane Cemetery
I've been saying for a couple of years that I wanted to make a groundbreaker style toe pincher coffin, but never ran across any old fence boards to make it with. While I was teaching my wife to carve and paint the foam window boards last week we decided to make one from foam over a wooden frame. I'm referencing the one built here - http://www.spyderwood.com/Styrofoam Coffin.html - for the basic frame construction, but the foam skinning will be done in the same style I do my window boards and singnage - old, dry, and split planks. I want to make the door slightly askew (and removeable) and have a skeleton arm hanging out, possibly with some movement if I can find the right parts. So far I've got the frame finished. Went very quick using staples to clamp the framing together, then secured it all once assembled with 4 inch galvanized screws to be sure it will be solid enough to withstand the elements. Next week I'll be making a run to Lowes for the insulation board to skin it.
