Here is a mailbox for the fisherman, A CATFISH MAILBOX, with sculpted markings and realistic whiskers. He has a contoured body of 3/4-inch rough-sawn, fish-like textured cedar. Painting techniques and hand carved details join together to bring the Catfish mailbox to life.
A standard, U.S. Post Office approved mailbox is used as the basis, then the sides, which have been painted with quality exterior acrylic/enamel paint, are attached and a wooden base plate is added for post mounting. This mailbox has a cedar door panel for a finished look. If you want a house number on your mailbox, a wooden plaque can be attached to the front of the door panel with your house number painted on it. As a final step, multiple coats of polyurethane varnish are applied for a protective coating.
This type of construction provides the CATFISH MAILBOX the strength and durability to withstand the elements for years
