Introduction: Redwood Mailbox

Large enough for a standard magazine to lay flat, water proof, recycled redwood lath with magnet door latch. The lath was all from Home Depot lumber spacers that they were throwing away.

I spent about two days on it but maybe 6 hours total. Started with a
5/8" ply frame ans a 1&1/2" X 12" Doug fir base then sprayed the
outside with contact cement and applying aluminum foil to make it water
proof. The lath is what took a long time but was really easy with a chop
saw and finish nail gun. I have coated it several times with deck stain
and still looks pretty good after about 6 years in our blistering heat
in the summer and cold wet winters.

Hello,
Thank you, I spent about two days on it but maybe 6 hours total. Started with a 5/8" ply frame ans a 1&1/2" X 12" Doug fir base then sprayed the outside with contact cement and applying aluminum foil to make it water proof. The lath is what took a long time but was really easy with a chop saw and finish nail gun. I have coated it several times with deck stain and still looks pretty good after about 4 years in our blistering heat in the summer and cold wet winters.
Glad you like it!
PS: I also rebuild guitars, make bread all the time and love photography!
