A Sneak Peek at the Glueless, Nailless, Screwless Casket

Here's version one, yet to be fine-tuned into version two soon.  I want to call it "green" but I cringe at labels.  This casket more mature than a buzz word.  So mature that it may be closer to the caskets of years past.  

Technically speaking, the casket was constructed with sliding dovetails and wooden pegs...


...the bottom profile functions as a handle... 



...the lid buttons down...



...but is built to be propped up...



...and was tested with more than 500 pounds hanging continuously for three days, with periods of another 160 pounds put into it, bring the total testing load to nearly 700 pounds.  Allthewhile being shaken, pushed, pulled, swung by various members of our quality control team (see past post).
