Wooden Mailbox DIY

Updated: Oct 31, 2020

How to make a wooden mailbox. This is an easy woodworking project and you'll find the measurements here if you want to make your own.


I used wood from 1 by 4, pressure treated beams instead of full slabs of wood so I had to attach mine together. And for the lid, I had to adjust it to make it longer by attaching thin boards there too. They are each about 3/4 of an inch thick in case you want to adjust the measurement to add those yourself because I think it makes it a little nicer. It has character.


See below to find the video of how this was done. And ask me any questions you might have!
