The Buckingham Range
Premium Casket Range
New Zealand’s most premium caskets. Made from premium quality timber without knots, it takes Ming a week to produce from raw timber to the assembled couch. It then has to undergo a further five processes including grain filling and surface preparation before the final high gloss coats are added. This process takes a further week.
