From Library Journal:

Woodworking is usually a lighthearted hobby, so the idea of making a coffin could be somewhat odd or even repugnant. However, there is a place for such information in the library. It's surprising more folks don't build coffins, given the cost of commercial models and the fact that such a creation could be viewed as a tribute to a loved one or a catharsis for one who is ill. Power's coffins are attractive, with store-bought metal fittings and fabric linings, and could easily be mistaken for professionally made models. Experienced woodworkers would have no trouble replicating these designs. There isn't a large audience for this book, but it would round out a comprehensive public library collection.
