My office was using a system of cheap shelving as mailboxes, that someone probably purchased at Walmart. It did not give the impression of “a group of dedicated professionals work here” to anyone that walked by the “mailboxes”. And I hated all of the metal, industrail-strength, institutional style of mailboxes available from all of the office furniture stores. So,.... I finally got around to building this.
While I’m overall happy the the project, I wish I made the table top portion a bit longer, and REMEMBERED to attach the top plate. Well, I’ll just bring it in tomorrow and glue it on.
The mailboxes are made of hardwood plywood with a poplar face.
The table top is red oak stained
And the legs are oak.
It may not be the prettiest piece of furniture I’ve built, but it’s not bad for being a rush job, and FAR better than what it is replaceing (the last photo).
