This was not a “fine” woodworking project, rather more of a brute force exercise in learning how to improvise when your regular tools are not enough to take on a piece of lumber like this! Cutting the curved piece with my little bandsaw was also difficult but it will do. The owners are painting and putting the actual mailbox on the piece so this is where my work ends (i.e. the final product will look much nicer). I think this thing is nearly indestructible.

UPDATE: From the photos, you can see that my neighbors have at least mounted the post in the proper location though it has not yet been painted and the actual postal box has not yet been mounted. Amazing how much shorter it looks when 2’ of it are buried in the ground!

Sadly a large tree fell on the mailbox this morning…BUT the mailbox post survived. Truly indestructible! If you look closely you can see it still standing! Hah!

And the photo is sideways…

Too bad I can’t delete a post. Anyway, it survived…

I drove by the other day and it looks like they finally finished up.

That is one tough post, well done!
