My version of ‘mail enhancement’. Wifey wanted a mailbox that opened from the front and the back….this is the final product….front and back doors are the same design/look.
Made from pine, scrap walnut, scrap cherry and hickory….more than 150 individual shaker shingles were made and had to be sanded to an angle on my sanding station. Shingles are made from a mix of hickory and walnut scrap.
