When I was in Grade School, <1948-1956> my home was eight or nine blocks from a funeral home. They always received new caskets in nice plywood boxes. The owner of the funeral home, who we knew, would give the boxes to me, and my friends to take into a woods and build "forts" tree houses, etc. out of the material. One scavenged box would last a year or three.
