But for me, they're perfect.
So - the casket is finished. I get very somber and feel quite emotional when building pieces like this. Sure, it is an honor, but with that comes a heavy heart.
The last few flag cases I've made for soldiers that have died have also made me very blue. This case made me particularly sad while I built it.
This casket is actually going to be buried in a pet cemetery up in northern California.
It will be filled with the cremains of two beloved dogs, as well as some of their toys, their collars, and more trinkets.
You know I was thinking about Stella the whole time I was building this. And Lily. And Bubinga. And Ipo. And Rennie. (All my beloved dogs)
These corner boxes will hold the cremains tins.
Notice the two small rare earth magnets - those hold the lid in place.
