Wooden Caskets

WOODEN CASKETS

The oldest material known to man makes it a natural and environmentally sound choice when selecting a casket. Hardwood is also strong, beautiful, and shock-resistant. And just as no two pieces of hardwood are exactly the same, each Aurora casket handcrafted of hardwood has its own, warming identity. Choosing a hardwood casket also leaves a legacy for the next generation because wood is a renewable resource.

The most popular species of hardwood caskets are:

  • Cherry
  • Mahogany
  • Walnut
  • Oak
  • Ash
  • Elm
  • Maple
  • Poplar
  • Cottonwood

Professional woodworkers, skilled in the art of cabinetry, follow many steps to ensure that the quality of the final product is comparable to that of the finest furniture. These craftsmen apply a wide variety of exterior finishes that accent the graining pattern that is unique to each species of wood.
