You can't take it with you when you go?

For the ultimate do-it-yourself project, how about making your own coffin? ABC news KSAX tells this story of Patrick Kilby in New York Mills, Minn....

Patrick has been a woodworker all his life. When his mother passed away, the family found that a nice, simple coffin started at $3,500 and went up quickly with extras. So, "My sister ... volunteered me to make a casket for my mother."

He found "solice" in the experience and now teaches others how to make coffins and offers a simple pine box through his new company website with prices starting at $1,200.

Some customers have bought a coffin as furniture!  I'm reminded of a Japanese Manga (comic book), where the main character traveled the world with his own coffin strapped to his back.
