Every year, Americans bury enough metal in the ground to rebuild the Golden Gate Bridge, says Vashon Island coffin maker Marcus Daly. His simple, handcrafted wooden coffins are an economical and environmentally friendly burial alternative. But Daly believes a coffin’s most important feature is that it can be carried. Here’s why.

“Carrying the ones we love (in a casket) is very important for us and the way we deal with death. To know that we have played a part and that we have shouldered our burden. If we make (death) too convenience, we are depriving ourselves of a chance to get stronger.” — Marcus Daly (from “The Coffinmaker”)
