Here’s my version of the popular post office bank. I got the P.O. box door and the brass slot from ebay. It is a bandsaw box. I cut it from one 24” x 30” x 1/2” sheet of baltic birch plywood. The decals I d/l’ed from the internet and printed onto adhesive shipping label paper.
I did all the machining to the box body before cutting out the inside. My drillpress table was great for this. I used forstner bits to hollow out a space for the door, and also the coin slot.
My dad was a mailman. This gave me time to think about him.
