Custom Copper Mail Box Design & Fabrication Page

Better than Standard Mailbox

This was made larger than a standard size mailbox. This made with 20oz copper, solid wood base, hardwood reinforced door, brass knob, rare earth magnet closure, along with your brass address numbers and all fastening hardware would run about $500 with shipping.

The curved top style you commonly see is a clever design. It is just the most efficient design to use the thinnest sheet metal possible with a reasonable strength.

I had made several of these copper mailboxes for for friends and neighbors as gifts back in the early 2000's. I made these designed with a taper down towards the back of the mail tube, and a tapered extension out front for a little added style and better weather protection while accessing your mail. I built this with a 3/4" hardwood plywood in the door for added strength, and a solid 2X10 wood bottom with groves cut in the floor for draining any water that might get in, so the mail should stay dry. The wood was varnished and I also have pure tung oil to use.

This was larger than a standard 6.75" wide mailbox. This was more of the rural size at 9.5" W X 14" T in the front. The inside mouth is 8.5" W X 12" T. The back drops down to 7" T inside.

I specialize in custom work, so this can be made in different sizes, styles, and copper thicknesses, so the cost would depend on your specific needs.

Wall Mount Mailbox

In mid 2015 I made this wall mount mailbox project for a Client named Julia Swyer in Scarsdale, New York. She had sent me a specific design she wanted, which resembled an envelope, as you can see. The cost with ground freight was $300. This was made with 24oz copper.

The size was 3.5" D X 10" T X 12.5" W.

This can also be made in different sizes, and copper thicknesses, so the cost would depend on your specific needs.

Security Mailbox

This taller security mailbox I made for myself (11-03). I first built this frame with 3/4" birch plywood for dent resistance (boys will be boys), covered in 20oz copper.  This shows some different versatile kind of design and fabrication work I can do. This could be made in different sizes and shapes to suit your needs.

This security mailbox was built 13" wide, 20" deep, and 19" tall to the tip of the roof, This would run about $800 plus shipping.
