We’re All Going To Die!
No really, it’s true. We all are going to die. So with that in mind I thought it would be fun (in a morbid sort of way) to check out a woodshop that specializes in building caskets, coffins (there is a difference) and urns. This woodshop has another interesting feature—it’s owned and operated by Trappist monks. The proceeds from Trappist Caskets help sustain their life at the New Melleray Abbey in Peosta, IA. The monks were kind enough to let me snoop around the shop. Read on to learn how they build them.
