Our caskets are the handmade alternative in a world of assembly-line manufactured caskets. Hand made, hand-sewn lining, and a hand-rubbed finish makes each as unique as your loved one.

Schieuer Woodwork's care and dedication is evident in the simple elegance of our caskets. Our designs that stand out in the showroom and our meticulous attention to detail set our caskets apart from the rest.

We all want to be remembered in ways that express and show respect for our individuality and our relationship with others - individually tailored celebrations of passage. Our distinctly unique and beautiful caskets will certainly distinquish your loved one's funeral service from others.

dignified, and unpretentious.
