Best Letterbox in Australia

Just wanted to share a pic of the letterbox I made, from this site. Absolutely in love with it.


I also put a couple of coats of intergrain ultra deck on it. Also used were ironbark sleepers.

Thanks for the idea!

2nd Best??
by: David

I say 'the best' because it was copied from your original idea which I think is the best idea so because its the same, it's the best :) The iron bark was readily available at my local garden supplies. Not cheap though, but considering the total cost of the mailbox it was still cheaper than buying a pre made sandstone look. Cheers

Well 2nd Best Perhaps ;D?

Hi David

Thanks so much for sharing the photo of your letterbox. I'm so pleased I could inspire your letterbox creation!

(For those who haven't seen the story of my custom mailbox creation have a look here.)

It looks as if the materials you have used nicely echo some of the materials used in your house exterior -- always a nice thing to do.

Did you find it difficult sourcing the ironbark timber?
