Wakeman Black Onyx: White Ash w Black Trim

This handsome, modern casket is made from a beautiful White Ash MDF décor board that gives it an exquisite timber grain appearance at a more affordable price than solid timber.  Finished with a matte black painted trim and a raised lid, it is elegant and classic, yet unique and a little more modern.

6’1″ x 22″ x13″ is our standard size for this range. Please contact us if you would like other sizes.

More about MDF ...

There is a lot of bad press around MDF (Medium Density Fibre Board), however the MDF used in caskets is biodegradable and does not contaminate the soil.  It is made by bonding wood fibres with a synthetic resin adhesive.

It is a very versatile product and produces a consistent finish.

The funeral industry use MDF with a timber foil finish.  When polished, it produces a beautiful natural timber look.  Most traditional caskets used by New Zealanders are glossed MDF.
