Constructing a decorative wooden mailbox post is easy and can be done by anyone using either Project #110 with its 6″x6″ post and “T” construction or Project #111 with its 4″x4″ post and an angle connection. With our experience, we recommend you to choose the design that matches the style of your home, as well as the style of the mailbox you have chosen. The type of lumber (cedar or pressure treated) is another way to personalize the look of your project, depending on your preference you can also stain or paint your wood.
Each project uses an Ornamental Wood Tie (OWT) Post Anchor and additional hardware for key connection points and to enhance the look of the wooden post. As with many of OZCO products post anchors can be switched with post bases depending on your installation site needs. This goes for the size of your project easily turn Project #111 into a beefier presence by changing out the 4″x4″ timber to 6″x6″ or even 8″x8″ and upsizing the hardware to match. All of the OWT hardware can be purchased in Laredo Sunset or Ironwood again depending on your preference of style.

My husband and I have a deck patio, and we were thinking about adding a timber pergola to it as well. I like how you mentioned that we should consider where we will place it. It is true that the pergola shouldn’t disrupt the natural flow of foot traffic. We will have to make sure that we do a decent sized one so it won’t ruin the traffic we have.
Thank you for the feedback and please let us know if we can be any help with choosing a project plan to fit your needs!
