The Grecian Rosewood Casket reflects the traditional and classic grecian octagonal casket shape without the high cost. It is designed with simple routed paneling and flat octagonal full or half couch lid that reflects light, giving off the rich dark redness and unique grains and burrs of the rosewood veneer. Its appearance is more striking once finished in a high gloss lacquer.
Grecian Rosewood Casket – Timber Paper Veneer
The Grecian Rosewood Casket is finished with a Rosewood Paper veneer to duplicate that traditional Rosewood timber. Rosewood has a distinctive and attractive grain and the wood is typically dark brown and red in color, with dark, prominent grain lines that run through the length of the board. The grain pattern is often described as being “striped” or “zebra-like,” with alternating bands of light and dark wood.

The medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood, by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres. It is a flexible material that shapes well with stable dimensions, so it will not expand or contract like solid wood does. As there is no grain, a property typically found in wood, there is no tendency to split.
Our veneers enjoys the elegant rich look of a solid wood and preserves natural resources. The rosewood veneer is naturally tinted in a shade of dark red. Our attention to detail on how the sheets of veneer are pieced together adds to the excellence of the craftsmanship.
