That rocks! You did a super job... gotta add to my 2009 list of things to do LOL.
What is this 'complete projects' thing you are talking about? So, do you mean you don't have half finished corpses on your dining room table all year long? What a concept!That's fantastic!
Just what I needed, yet another project to add to the list. Now all I need to do is actually complete a project.
Thanks everyone fror the kind words.How did you get that "old" look to the wood/foam for the coffin?
Thanks for the tips, again great project. I just made my first toe pincher coffin this year, so I guess I am a little behind everyone. Not exactly sure what a rotary rasp looks like but I will ask next time I am at Home Depot. Thanks again for the response.Thanks everyone fror the kind words.
The coffin is made entirely of cedar fence pickets. It's a very soft wood so I used a rotary rasp in my drill to gouge the wood and added more detail with my Dremel then painted with an airbrush. The only thing made of foam is the lock. The chains are the $5 blow-molded plastic version.
Thanks Smelly-Skelly....Not exactly sure what a rotary rasp looks like but I will ask next time I am at Home Depot.
Awesome Prop ScareFX. As usualThanks Smelly-Skelly.
SpectreTTM mentioned rotary rasps in a post last month. That's how I found out about them. Very useful. Learning about things like that are why I love this place.
Glad you like it Smelly-Skelly.Thanks for all the info FX
I was watching your video again as I "gots to have me one of these" for next year. I had a couple quick questions, OK 3.
1. Is the hinge for the front on the botton of the coffin, thus it open from the "top"
2. What speed is the wiper motor running? Looks like you have it at 6V to slow it way down
3. Is the lid attached directly to the wiper motor with a cam, or linkage system?
You don't by chance have a write up on this thing do you?
