The Traditional Poplar Abbey Casket is built of tulip poplar hardwood. Saint Meinrad chose poplar wood for this casket because the tulip poplar tree is very prevalent in southern Indiana. The lumber has a variety of color and grain patterns. Each casket is hand wiped with a cherry stain to give the casket a rich even color. The Traditional Abbey Casket is fully lined in off-white linen. A solid wood swing bar handle is secured with Venetian bronze hardware on all four sides for ease of carrying.

Delivery: Shipping & handling by common carrier is included with price of casket. Call for expedited, weekend or holiday delivery charges. Delivery is available 7 days a week.
