Are wooden coffins “normal”?
Yes, for the regular joe!
Not quite. The regular joe wasnt likely to be buried in anything, let alone a wooden sarcophagus. During the Middle Kingdom, a wooden sarcophagus was reserved for the Egyptian elite. Your regular Joe was wrapped in linen and buried in the desert with a little bit of food for their journey to the afterlife.

previously on tomb raider...
I hope these remains are left untouched, these sarcophagi should be treated like lightning-look but don't touch. I remember another another story from Saqqara about a toy airplane but i could have the wrong location.
the ancient egyptians are a mystery wrapped in an enigma.
