Mahogany, Walnut, and Cherry are considered to be among
the most elegantly crafted wood caskets and offer exquisite highly polished
finishes similar to the finest furniture along with classical urn and rounded
corner shell designs adding softness to the casket exterior appearance.
Caskets crafted from Maple and Oak are woods everyone is
familiar with. Maple has amazing strength and hardness and anyone who has ever
gone bowling has walked on maple. Oak is noted for its highly recognizable
graining pattern which is a predominant reason families select oak caskets.
Pine, Poplar and Veneer caskets represent the most
economical categories of wood caskets. Poplar caskets, in particular, are
available in a wide variety of finish colors and polishes, which provides a
broad and flexible number of choices in this category.
