I’m helping to bring a farm back to life and there was no mailbox by the road. There was a heap of mailboxes lying around but had the wrong numbers since I guess the properties have been renumbered since then.
To start the renovation and restoration of postal delivery, I need new numbers, so used the opportunity to have a go at some carving.
The font for the numbers was borrowed from the previous numbers. I had to make a few up.
Wood is a old piece of pine barnboard. It should last a while but probably not forever.
Hand carved with chisels and gouges and a mallet.
Finished with raw linseed oil.
