Solid Cedar Mailbox
Reader Todd Johnson needed to replace his mailbox, so he went to his local home center to get inspired.
“I went ahead and started the project and then realized I should have taken some measurements. So I called an associate at the store to help me. Unfortunately, the measurements they gave me were incorrect, so my posts were too far apart. Instead of starting over, I decided to add the cedar boards to fill it in. I then stained it and finished it off with metal house numbers.” — Todd. Click here to see more step-by-step photos of how Todd created this project.
