Very cool! I think I’ll design a vinyl wrap for it and make it look spiffy. Unsure what I’ll do but was considering duplicating the brick and roof pattern on our house and applying to the box. Might even make the door look like our garage door. That would be pretty neat and fairly easy to do.Heck, I might even make one side look like front of house with doors and all, and the other side like the back of the house. The proportions are about right.I like those kind of home made mail boxes. The ones I hated were a simple small pipe or square pipe, used for mail. Those were too small and the several I had didn't have a door either. My favorite was the box of Dolly Parton's parents, that one was huge and likely 1/4" steel. The door was about 18" wide and kind of shaped like a barn, all red, and very heavy. That was back in the early 90's. On that one route(RR01) we delivered to the parents, one brother(Denver), and one older sister(Freda I think she was(misspelled I'm sure)).
My father in law worked at at iron and steel factory. It was built there. They started making them and selling. The roof is all one piece using dies and everything. The one weak link was the hinge setup. I used a much more robust hinge this time and also mounted it inside the door so that it hopefully won’t get as much weather exposure.
