Etsy Find: Beautiful Ipe Mailboxes

These beautiful mailboxes would certainly help any home stand out from the typical metal ones most of us have. Made from 100% reclaimed or discarded Ipe wood, these mailboxes are as sustainable as they are beautiful.

The mailbox pictured here ($127.00 from Etsy seller BPCustomWoodworks) was fabricated from Ipe remnants from a local restaurant remodel in Seattle and is actually two years old. Sanded to a perfection and then oiled with natural oils, the box is weather and insect resistant. All fasteners are stainless steel and will not rust or corrode. In short, it'll last a lifetime.
All boxes are customized with your individual address number and the approximate mailbox dimensions are 17" x 9" x 9".

BPCustomWoodworks also makes beautiful computer hard-drive and DVD drive cases.
