Finishing a Casket

I thought that this pile of pieces from a Double Casket might be interesting to see.  These pieces are the drawers and other loose items from the interior of a double casket.  I was sanding them to get them ready to accept the handmade paper that wraps all elements of a casket caracas.  When sanded, the wood looses is oxidation layer and it bonds better to the wheat paste used to glue the paper to the form.



  1. Great picture! I can't wait until my caskets arrive!
