My old mailbox was a crappy, 1980’s, shiny, brass piece of junk. It was vertically oriented and had a small top opening, so it was difficult to find anything inside that wasn’t extra long.
The new one is curly big leaf maple with Gaboon ebony accents. The center panel is 12gauge copper wire. It’s finished with a coat of tung oil to pop the grain and then spray on lacquer.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Comments, questions and critiques welcomed.
