The heartwood of rosewood can be either golden brown or a dark blood-red, while the sapwood is pale yellow and up to 60mm wide. The wood is of medium texture and the grain is variable. Freshly cut, the wood has a fragrant odour and is often highly figured: burrs are highly prized in furniture-making.
Please note: This design is not real solid timber. It has the look of solid timber only, but uses our normal substrate made from plantation pine fibreboard (commonly referred to as ‘MDF’ or ‘Customwood’).
This picture coffin is beautifully handmade by our master craftsmen and wrapped in a photographic quality image, using the latest technology. The richness of colour and vibrance of this Expression Coffin is truly stunning.
Each of our Expression Coffins is available with a matching ashes urn.
Expression ashes urns are handcrafted to complement each coffin design, they are both beautiful art pieces and functional ashes containers. The felt covered urn base is simply removed for insertion of the ashes container inside. The external sizes of the urns are: W32cm x H15cm x D22cm. Contact us for more information.
We offset our use of natural materials by operating our Memorial Tree Program. When you purchase one of our coffins, a memorial tree will be planted on your behalf.
The tree will be planted by the Men of the Trees society, who are a non-profit, non-political group dedicated to the reforestation, maintenance and protection of trees in Australia. Your funeral director will supply you with a certificate explaining the Memorial Tree Program.
