Back in May, I built a mailbox for the Ashburton Society of Arts to save them the annual cost of a PO Box.
Constructed from the frame of an old microwave, pallet offcuts, a roasting dish and the rubber from an electrical cable the mailbox not only saves in the cost of new parts, but also saves these items from the landfill. The PVC tube is round on the front and rectangular on the back and was sculpted into this unique shape with heat. Painted postbox red, the mailbox is attached to the fence at the Art Society’s Gallery and Studio at 53 Short St, Ashburton.
The mailbox was entered in the 2022 Resene Upcycling Awards.
