    ASSEMBLY INFORMATION

    (2) CASKET




  • Notes:
    • (1) There is no drilling required - the only tool you need is a Philips screwdriver.
    • (2) You will see that the various components have grooves in them and/or protruding flat pieces of wood; these protrusions are shaped like a sector of a circle and are called “biscuits”. During the assembly process, the biscuits will be inserted in the matching grooves of the adjoining component- these are the joints which secure the assembled coffin.
    • (3) To prevent any movement while the glue is setting, screws must be inserted; the components are pre-drilled in the factory to accommodate the screws. The screws can either remain in the coffin or removed after the glue has dried and the holes filled with wood putty if desired.
    • (4) Since the sides, lid, head and end pieces come to you in their factory-finished state, care must be exercised not to soil them; remember - they are not varnished. Wipe off any excess glue with a clean cloth as soon as possible. Any blemishes that do occur to finished surfaces may be cleaned up by gently sanding with fine water paper.

  • Step 1:
    • Unwrap your flatpack and ensure that you have all the components as listed above.
  • Step 2:
    • Place the floor panel on a level surface; the floor panel now becomes the template.
  • Step 3:
    • Apply glue to the grooves at the bottom edge of the head piece; place it against the floor panel, align the grooves with the biscuits, and tap in lightly.

  • Step 4:
    • Screw in one screw from the outside in order to secure the head piece to the floor panel.
  • Step 5:
    • Repeat Step (3) with the foot piece. Repeat Step (4)

  • Step 6:
    • Take one of the side panels and apply glue to all the grooves at the edges; place it against the head piece, foot piece and the floor panel, align the grooves with the biscuits, and tap in lightly. (the side panel will automatically connect with the biscuit at the head end of the floor panel).
  • Step 7:
    • Screw in screws from the outside in the holes provided in order to secure the side panel to the head piece, foot piece and floor panel.

  • Step 9:
    • Apply glue to the 2 dowels and gently tap them into the holes at the top of the head and foot pieces. Note: Thoroughly clean off any excess glue - this is to prevent the lid from being prematurely fixed in position.

    • Take the pieces of rope and insert them through the holes provided; knot them on the inside to form handles.
