I made this about a month ago, based on a medium sized Post Office Mail Box door.
Credit Green_Hornut for the inspiration, he made a similar (but smaller) design in 2015.
The material came off the cutoff’s pile and is 3/8 inch oak everywhere but the back and top. The back was left at 7/8 inch to counter the weight of the door and the top was solid oak with some plane work to round it down to the side profile.
Finished with a few coats of homemade wipe-on poly and some furniture wax.
Overall dimensions are 9 1/2 tall, 5 3/4 wide and deep. Door size is 6 1/4 tall and 5 1/2 wide.
Now that I have mine, to make the banks for the 7 grandkids…
