This is a mailbox project that I built after our newspapers kept getting thrown on the wet stairs. I guess it was just too much work to walk up the stairs and try to stuff the paper into our small house mounted mailbox. The Post is made from inexpensive cedar fence boards with a 6×6 copper post cap from Home Depot. The metal mailbox was purchased from Lowes. The post is hollow so it just slips over top of a short pressure treated 4×4 buried in the ground.
