EDNA – Trey Ganem is just a little bit country and a whole lot of rock ‘n’ roll.
His killer beard could easily land him on a cable television show about hunting animals – which he’s done – and his custom paint jobs and bodywork can be appreciated on many cars cruisin’ the Crossroads.
But what the tattooed father of three is doing nowadays might surprise some: He customizes caskets.
Standing in his warehouse – a hidden gem near downtown Edna – Ganem hovers over a vat of water as he slowly and carefully places inked film in the bath. Using his index finger, he taps away a few bubbles forming and then sprays the sheet with a chemical to separate it from the design.
As the ink begins to float in the water, the edge of a casket is dipped, marking it with the design.
It’s warm in the warehouse – a black and white former chop shop naturally bright from the sun. An industrial-sized fan is the only relief from the still humid, hot Texas days.
It still looks like a garage inside, and an old run-down car in the parking lot adds to the vibe. But for Ganem, it’s the home of a 22-year-old dream in the making.
