Man creates furniture that turns into coffins

WATERVILLE, Maine -- A man from Maine is making a business of making furniture that doubles as coffins.

The man's specialty is designing coffins and building them in his own shop.

Over the past five years he has developed beds, book cases, and a chest of drawers that doubles as a coffins.

"Basically, like on the bookcase coffin, you take the shelves out, you take the screws that are holding the shelves up out, and if you haven't put the handle on yet, you put the handles on and you're ready to go," said Chuck Lakin.

The average cost of a metal coffin or casket is about $2,300.

The man says one of his coffins runs between $400 to $900.
