JBaz, I once saw a sign, in a woodturner's shop, that read, "We'd rather TURN it than BURN it." That's my philosophy.
These things were all made from 100% recycled timber. The lettering and letterbox were all made from crate timber that I salvaged at work. The post and "numbers board" on the letterbox came from a house that was over 50 years old and the slab from the sign is a cut from the outside of a log that was previously being used as garden edging at my folks' place.
Sepias, I'm hopeless with metal, especially when it comes to fine tolerances. That's what I love about wood. It's soooooo easy to work with.
In God, we trust; all others must provide data.
