Distressing the Animated Coffin Top

I had a question about creating the texture on the Animated Creepy Coffin. Since I used soft cedar fence boards for that prop, it was pretty easy to use a rasp bit on my electric drill to distress the wood.



No special technique was used. Just go at it until it looks like you want it to look.

Hmmm. Looks like one of my woodworking projects except I'm not trying to make them look "distressed."

This coffin seems cool. I actually just built one of the $25 dollar ones you had listed and it came out great thanks for the ideas/plans
