About a year ago i saw a license plate mailbox for sale on some website for about $300 and I really loved it but it wasn't the kind that was wall mounted so I didn't get it. (i also didn't want to spend $300 for a mailbox)

A few weeks ago I made a california mailbox and I kinda over did it and made a few more. Here is a picture of the one I have mounted.



the design is really simple but they are a pain in the butt to make. after making a few of these i have realized i am not as strong as i thought i was, i had to get my dad to break some of the rivets for me.

Great job.  I have the license plates, but I haven't figured them out yet.

That is really awesome! Are there certain postal specifications that you have to make it to?
