Halloween Coffin Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about Halloween coffin plans. The project features instructions for building a basic coffin for Halloween, using wooden slats and plywood. You can even use scrap wood or pallet wood to get the job done in a professional manner. Make sure you take a look over the rest of the related projects to see alternatives and more projects for your garden. Remember that you might need to adjust the size of the components to suit your needs.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a Halloween coffin

Building the bottom and top

Building the bottom and top

The first step of the project is to build the bottom and top of the coffin. Mark the cut lines on the plywood sheet and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.

Fitting the sides

Fitting the sides

Next, you need to build the sides of the coffin from 1×6 lumber. Cut both ends of the slats at 83.5 degrees. Align the edges to the bottom, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the bottom component and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the sides. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth.

Frame

Frame

Continue the project by attaching another component to the frame of the coffin. Drill pilot holes through the side slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the component. Leave no gaps between the components for a professional result.

Assembling the frame

Assembling the frame

Make the cuts to the rest of the components of the frame. Drill pilot holes through the bottom and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the slats. Insert more 1 1/4″ brad nails to lock the adjacent slats together tightly.

Attaching the top

Attaching the top

Attach the top to the coffin, making sure you align the edges properly. Use a piano hinge to secure the top to the frame of the coffin.

Top Trim

Top Trim

Build the trims from 1×3 lumber. Make the cuts to both ends of the slat and secure it to the top using 1 1/4″ brad nails and glue.

Fitting the top trims

Fitting the top trims

Continue the project by fitting the rest of the trims. Fit the trims into place and lock them using 1 1/4 “brad nails and glue. Leave no gaps between the components and make sure the corners are right-angled.

Fill the holes and dents with wood putty and let it dry out for several hours. Use 120-200 grit sandpaper to smooth the surface. Remember that you can adjust the design and size of the coffin to suit your needs.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the project and to protect the components from decay, we recommend you to apply paint or stain.
