WOW, this is great. I love rustic. I never would have guessed it was made with new stuff. I would love to be able to do this :)

That is one of the coolest things I have ever seen!
I can’t even come up with a compliment that good enough.
Thanks for sharing!

Excellent “deconstruction” work. Hard to believe that this is new wood and metal. Nice job.

That’s the coolest mailbox I’ve seen. If I was a mailman, that would be the highlight of my route, great work.

I agree with others. It should be in an art museum.

I really like this…a nice artistic piece. It just has a nice feel to it.

Would love to have one but mail boxes take such a beating from the snow plows that it would not survive here…my current one is bent half over.

thanks to all for your amazing reviews!

to Redoak49. I know secrets how to keep wood safe in very low temperature and very high. I lived in the North, near Alaska, for 3 years. there are 122 farenheit in summer and -79.6 in winter. in spring temperature changes from 68 to 2 fahrenheit! and all wooden stuff which is outside – keeps safe up to hundreds of years! I’ve learned their secret and people from North so wood can keep safe in different situation and temperatures. so I use it and don’t worry for all my stuff. and if you want to have one – I can promise, it will alive for a very long time!
