On the contrary. That is what I take along on dentist appointments.

... And that would be bad how??? JS *rofl* I didn't get to collect my candy tax from the grandson this year; "He wasn't 'feeling it'" I was told... no candy for Nana this year. (And in my defense, I've always walked with him; it was my payment

OutoftheWoodwork Wow, Awesome job, Doug! That would be awesome to build! One of these years I'm gonna get to the Halloween patterns I have. That would make an amazing prop!!!

CharleyL You should have put a mannequin in the casket, in a black suit, but I'll bet if you had you wouldn't have had many candy takers.

kp91 The Landau Bars were cut out of MDF and just double stick taped on the windows. My first iteration was cut out of green foam on the scroll saw, but they were too small for the window size. I ran this set off on the CNC scaling the pattern up considerably. They had a little trouble staying on because of the curvature of the glass, so I had to add extra tape under the upper end. The paint had barely dried when I got them mounted.

I think the effect worked just fine, it definitely looked like a hearse. A step stool was needed for the littlest ones to reach inside for the candy, but it was all good.

Even though there were no surprises, nobody was convinced that something bad wasn't going to happen when they reached into the casket.

The funniest thing is the evening ended so late that there was no time to take the casket out of the car. My wife has to take the car (with casket) to work tomorrow... hopefully nobody stumbles upon it in the parking lot.

It is kid sized......

Standing order for Halloween is to never buy candy you don't mind getting stuck with.

Peanut M&Ms, Reese's cups, and almond joys are OK, taffy, smarties, and cheap lollipops are not acceptable
