I have been really surprised by the responce to these cedar mail box post. Evidently alot of folks like these. We have made ALOT of these.I take a cedar log off the farm, mill it out on my 18” bandsaw, run it throught the planner, and route the family name, and street address on both sides of the post. I also make end caps for the top and front out of copper flashing. A coat of tung oil, and several coats of polly. Because I use regular cedar logs, I always make them tall, so if they are installed on the lower side of a road, the mail box heigth will still be correct. Other wise, we cut some off before they are installed. The mail carriers REALLY like them cause of the router work, which is then painted black, so its super easy for them to know who’s mail is suppose to go into the box, and def cuts down on getting your neighbors mail in your box. LOL I always suggest that each spring the owners put a liberal coat of polly on it.
