The Coffinmaker

Since all the coffin houses are made by handmade, we cut the necessary wooden boards one by one.

I will make a side board by sticking several boards.

Apply adhesive to the boards of the same size ......

I will stretch it carefully with your fingers.

Place the sides of the four wooden boards, set them on the machine for bonding, apply pressure.

The first piece is completed in this way.

After similar work, when the side boards are aligned, I will stand as if it becomes a frame and I will drive the wooden dowels.

Cut out the protruding part with a saw.

I will apply a file to the surface to smooth it.

It also finishes the top board smoothly.
