This was one of my earliest projects. Had a family member who wanted a replica of the covered bridge in our area. Getting the angles right on the roof was the hardest part, makes me wish I had paid more attention during geometry ;-)

Nice job.

B.t.w. – it’s not geometry that would help you with this, it’s trigonometry.

It looks much nicer and more functional than the one i tried to make -so the mail persons would not have to go through the obstacle course of wood in the front yard!

Really neat! And as for geometry, trig, etc., my dad (born in Estille Springs, TN) used to say: “Don’t worry about the mule going blind…just hang onto the plow.” Those coffins of mine? Damn, I scratched around and made mistakes until the parts came together…your mailbox has the same challange. You did good! Stephen
