This is the wooden mailbox I finished just a little bit before joining lumberjocks. I made it out of cedar and spruce. It started as something to just mess around with. I screwed up a lot but I figured I would keep going just for the fun of it. Needless to say it actually didn’t turn out too bad. To make sure it didn’t leak I caulked it with silicone. I then stained it with min wax early American. And six coats of Cabot spar varnish. I then put it together and like any good former commercial fisherman I put a hose on it full blast for five minutes with a piece of paper inside. Surprisingly it didn’t leak. The mailman appreciates it and the wife likes it. In case your wondering about how I got the flag so perfectly triangular (which I don’t see why anyone would) it’s because it’s the inside of a speed square. Hope you like it
