Building A Mailbox Post,Custom Shelving Design,Sears Wood Turning Tools - Plans On 2016

26.12.2013 admin
If you recently built your own mailbox but are left wondering how to anchor the post, don’t worry it’s easy. For this guide we’ll be using concrete to anchor in the post as it’s the longest lasting method. A sturdy wood mailbox post decorated with paneled sides and a cornice top is a far cry from the syrup cans and cigar boxes Americans set by the roadside to get the first rural deliveries - or worse, the sad metal pipes used today to support a single dented and rusting box.
And the mailbox itself was pretty sad too – very faded and starting to rust around the hinges.  BUT spray paint works magic, so I was willing to give it a try! First I removed the mailbox from the pole and removed the old faded address numbers from the pole. While the post was drying, I started working on the mailbox, the flag, the trim pieces holding the flag on, and the latches.


I gave the mailbox 2 light coats of white primer and then 2-3 light coats of white satin spray paint. Building a wooden mail box is a straight forward outdoor project, but you need to pay attention when choosing the plans and the design for your project. Locking the posts into place is not difficult, especially if you follow these instructions. Building the actual mail box is not difficult, but there are many design options you can choose from. Standing tall like a sentry, a paneled post lends an air of authority and sophistication to any stop on the mail carrier's route.Assembling one from basic lumber and trim takes half a day and basic carpentry skills. Building a wooden mail box is a straight forward project, if you plan everything from the very beginning and choose the best materials for your budget. Moreover, you need to adjust the size and the design of the mail box to fit your needs and to match the style of your backyard.


As you can see in the image, you have to cut the wooden posts at the required size (make sure you add 24″) and assemble the support in a professional manner. After choosing the location for the mail box, we recommend you to dig a 2′ hole in the ground and to set the post with temporary braces.
