All Wood Mailbox Cover
If you have a standard metal mailbox, it probably has black or gray faded paint and a wimpy plastic flag. In our search for practical uses for old wooden swing sets, we thought a simple wood cover for that beat up mailbox might be a nice change.
Milled with rounded edges, lightly sanded and left natural without a finish so you can pick your own color or finish. Mailbox cover is shipped directly to your home and ready for minor assembly and installation on arrival.

We never thought our simple mailbox cover would be art. Thanks Bill.
This was an unexpected pleasure. The following notes are from Jack and Bill
Just thought you would like to see my mushroom mailbox. I put a mushroom pull on the door. Thanks for everything. Bill
Hi Bill. That is remarkable. What a work of art! You're making my simple mailbox cover look like a million bucks.
My cover is not worthy of what you've done there. Can you tell me how you got to this? Very Inspiring. Can I post on Jack's Backyard and OtterWorksUSA? Jack
Jack, I carved this from a cherry trunk 30”by 6 feet. Added the small mushrooms. The caps made from cross sections. My town, Kennett Square, is the mushroom capital of the country. (They claim) Feel free to post as you see fit. Your mailbox kits are the best I’ve seen. Thanks. Bill
