Prop Build: The Casket

An upcoming installment of The Dark Verses will be called Purest Black, where I plan to explore the notion of reality and how we interact with it. It’s also where I plan to show off this beauty of a prop.

On father’s day, I got together with the ol’ man and we put together this casket. It’s a pretty simple design. I picked up some fence boards from Home Depot before heading out, and he had some spare particleboard lying around, along with a few other odds and ends.

For the final touch I took a propane torch to the lid, giving it a rustic look.


The next step? Bury it, and fill it with a “corpse.”


Stay tuned…
