CUSTOM DESIGN COPPER MAIL BOXES

Nearly all "handmade" mailboxes I see on the internet are stamped out. I have been asked many times if I could make one... that is truly "hand-crafted." Designing these are actually a bit trickier than one might think (especially the doors and hinges) – but I enjoy the challenge.
I design these for a pole, pillar, hanger or on-the-house set-ups and mounting.
