This will be a delivery and mailbox in one piece of furniture.

The boxes got the first application of Watco Danish Oil.

I like to do about three applications.

Love that lid.

Most of the panels you see here are cedar fencing. It works really nice.

I either wax it or spar it. Depends on where it’s going to be. This one will be spar because it gets wet.

Great work! Those are sharp looking..I love Cedar, and the fact you left the knots and sapwood..rustic. The Danish Oil really brings out the grain…
