Just finished this piece tonight... I had a local costumer come up to me sometime a week ago and asked me if there was any way I could build a 5 foot tall coffon that looked old and very much used... I told her, "No Problemo"...
So I built this out of 1/2" plywood, Ferring strips for the frame and then when it was finished I cut out peices with a jigsaw down towards the bottom of the lid and a few on the de for good measure... I then weathered it to make it look like it suffered through some water damage... This is the biggest project that I have done so far and I am pretty pleased with the results...
Anyway On with the pics...

The weathering at the bottom really sets it off.
Every time I look at the pics I think of Return of the living Dead.
