Default Chinese coffins

Hi, friends.
When I came back to my country I went to a woodworking workshop looking for some wood to make the boxes for my stuffs. I saw the construction of wooden coffins and I was amazed for the enormous quantity of manual work needed to make just one of these coffins. They are very expensive and are used for rich families for their beloved ones.

I know Asians are relatively small, but it looks as though they would have to be buried on their sides, in those!!

Weird looking coffins! My neighbor across the street made his own rough boxes for him and his wife to be cremated in. They are made out of pine and shaped like the old Western coffins. They hade to be built without anything that wouldn't burn. Unique!

And also too heavy. They use a small crane to put the coffin on a truck.

I saw some obituary ceremonies but never witnessed the burial process.

In some areas of China, coffin's are banned...burials are banned...cremation is the only legal option. The coffin's Alexis showed pics of must really be some kind of big deal!!!
