Attractive Mailbox

An attractive mailbox adds interest to the front of the house and the knowledge that you made it yourself makes it even more special.


Here is a plan for a wooden mailbox with a magazine/newspaper holder. The joinery for the box is primarily glue and butt joints, utilizing the long grain-to-long grain orientation of the sides, back and front. The bottom, however sits in a tongue-and-groove joint between the front and back pieces to allow the wood to move. Here is an easy to follow mailbox project that you can have completed by Christmas.

Build this mailbox and give it as a gift or place it on your own home. Either way it's going to attract attention and compliments too.
