In many areas the mailbox is an integral part of the curb appeal of your home. Making a mailbox is an excellent family project and can be used to teach woodworking skills to the young and novice woodworker. Mailboxes also make great personal gifts for friends and relatives for all occasions including house warming's.
Note: Many jurisdictions have regulations governing the size and positioning of mailboxes. Always check with your postal authority to ensure that the mailbox you are planning on making meets with their requirements.
Always read the mailbox plans carefully and make sure that there is enough information provided for you to be able to complete the project - before you invest in materials. Some of the plans are excellent, giving a great deal of instruction in text, pictures and drawings while other plans are only drawings and still others are only sketches.
These mailbox plans are for the novice to intermediate woodworker.
