There really isn’t much to say about this one except what the photos show. It’s a truck themed mailbox. It was supposed to be a one day project. It actually took me several days because of health issues. This was one of my favorite kind of projects though. What I mean by that is, no planning. I’d been wanting to make another themed mailbox ever since I done one for my wife. I just took some wood, drew some lines where I thought they should be, and started cutting. This is what I came up with.

Very cool William. I too thought it was a kids toy until I looked through the pictures.

Man that is one nice mailbox. Is there a Ford emblem? You had me on the first picture till I noticed the fender had a flag. Great job William.

Do you think the postman(woman) would be upset if it were painted brown with UPS in gold???

Thanks fellas.
I’m glad ya’ll like it.
No Ford emblem.
I did think about putting Willy’s on the front (as in William). I decided in the end that it would be corny and most people wouldn’t get it anyway.

Great design for a very fun mailbox. Is the bed open on the bottom so it doesn’t hold water?

Thanks Rex.

Yes Shoptinker, it’s open.
However, I thought about placing a bottom in it with holes for drainage and maybe planting flowers in it.

Very interesting. For a while I wondered where you put the mail. The last two photos showed where. Thanks for posting.
