Doesn't feel right to click the "like" link. 
Beautiful work and a fitting tribute to a good friend.

The sort of question you never want to be asked, but would never decline. 
 

Id just felled a large tree when my mates dad asked if he could “have a quick word”

 

How unprepared was I for the question that followed.....  Would I carry the coffin he expected to be in within a couple of weeks. 
 

Totally floored me. 
 

Think of it as an immeasurable honour and privilege to have been thought so highly of to have been asked.

Nice work, but sad at the same time.

 

Guy I knew had a coffin made from the timber he had milled himself over the years. He even got to lay in it to try it out for size before his passing.

That`s a very nice thing that you have done & I`m sure it was made with love & respect for your good friend ... as mentioned earlier it will be a honour and privilege to have made that for him!

I have been to several funerals recently, some close friends and have noticed the off the shelf coffins are nice and shiney but look cheap if this is the correct word to use......your  effort looks so much better...
