Made and set this mailbox post and house after church one afternoon for an elderly lady who said a tractor knocked her’s over. Had no plans, just made it from what I had laying around under my carport. The post is made from 2” x 5 1/2” X 6’ solid Black Walnut coated 3 times in Thompson Water Sealer. The “house” is made from 2” wide fallout scrap from another project, it is entirely made from Honduran Mohogany and it is also coated 3 times in Thompsons Water Sealer. She did ask me to paint the roof with black paint first.

That’s a great addition to any house. It’s very attractive.
