Casket wood


Recommended Posts

My grandmother died this week after a fight with Alzheimer's. It was sad but I was glad to see her suffering end. What does this have to do with guitars? Her casket was made of solid mahogany. I thought it was sad that all that wood was just going to be buried in the ground never to be seen again. :D

I told my wife, when I go I want to be buried in a pine box. Leave the mahogany for fine crafted instruments.

yea I know what you are talking about.

I am sorry for your loss.

my grandfather was a master craftsman, he loved walnut, had it everywhere.

anyway, he had a solid walnut casket. was heavy as can be, my gramps was only 5'7 130, so the casket was about 1200 pounds...

my dad was not happy but gramps had to have the nicest stuff... Still to this day we talk about how heavy that thing was.

As long as they don't roast me in a Fender 3-tone sunburst I don't care what it is they shove me in - I won't really be in it anyway!

Sorry about your loss mate. Alzheimer's is a bitch of a thing.

Cremation for me. Take anything out that you can use, then burn the rest of me. It's cheaper for the family, and you can spread my ashes anywhere. I'd rather be in the ocean, or on a mountain than in a hole near other dead people.

yea, but how do you know you still cant feel stuff?> but you cant do anything bout it??

that part would suck

but yea, just put me in a welded box and dump me in the ocean after you take all the vital stuff outta me

If that were the case, would it be better to be burnt in a matter of minutes or to be eaten by worms over decades? :D

Thanks for all your kind words.
