Woman Who Built Her Own Coffin To Be Used After She Dies, Currently Uses It As Bookshelf

wonders never end in this world, some people have developed a tendency of building their own coffins and then displaying them as decorations in their homes until they die. Let’s see this American woman who did the same.

A 52 year old woman identified as Oceania Leona from Portland, USA has a set of beautiful pine bookshelves displaying her favorite books and a few decorative objects in her living room.

According to Wall Street Journal, her guests regularly check it out, but others guess that the shelves will one day be removed to make room for Leona as she is laid to rest and buried in her homemade coffin.

Death has always intrigued me. I don’t think in a weird way,” she explained.

Leona is employed as an administrator at a municipal public works department and doubles as a home funeral guide, as well as a death midwife, hospice volunteer and public speaker on the art of dying well, according to Wall Street Journal.

Chuck Lakin assisted Leona to build her coffin as part of his coffin-making course.

He also makes more tailored coffins to order.

Chuck told The Post that making a coffin costs about Ugx 1,100,000 for the wood and about Ugx2,000,000 for his expertise.

Chuck was inspired to assisted others traverse alternative funeral proceedings after his dad felt impersonal.

He has been building an average of 3 to 5 coffins a year since 2000 but managed to make 10 last year.
