I really like the arts and crafts movement. Maybe because it’s mostly right angles. Pegging things together has a great feel and I love dark grained poplar.

Fantastic looking mailbox. I’m like Thomas, as I have never seen polar that dark either. But it looks fabulous.

Great box. love the design.

That is some mighty nice poplar. I have seen poplar in green, lavender, tan, brown ond almost white, but the good colored areas are all very small. ( my dragonfly had lavender wings.) Have never seen poplar at homedepot with this much color. Great score on the lumber.

Keep up the fantastic designs.

Excellent! I have run into some really nice wood at Lowe’s and HD. You have to look but you can find it.

Nicely done project!

Now that is a great idea. I should make a mailbox for me and my neighbor. The snow plows have pretty much made it a priority.

This is really good looking mailbox, if I were the postman, I will just remember your house by the look of this mailbox.
