Joe, I have only used black locust for fence posts. I learned the hard way to use the shortest possible staples because anything more than 3/4” would get bent over every time. This is because the wood is that hard…think of trying to drive a nail into aluminum. :D Anyhow, if you do make a mail box, plan to pre-drill for every fastener. Good luck!
