Finish: Untreated, Superior Danish Oil or Diamond Coating

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have chosen your product to be left untreated, your product will fade to a pale silver in time. We recommend a pressure wash or a sand once a year to remove any moss or unwanted mess on the timber and then treat with an exterior oil to slow down decay.

Danish Oil – If you have chosen Danish oil we recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

Dimond Coating – If you have chosen Dimond Coating, top up kits can be purchased on our website or over the phone. We would recommend you treat your product once a year minimum. Twice a year if you want to maintain full protection.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Air-dried oak: Your product has been made using Air-dried timber. This is has been seasoned for outdoor conditions. Do not keep exterior products indoors.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Personalised Wooden Post Box

A beautiful quality personalised Oak Post Box for your home.

There have to be hundreds of post boxes to choose from but if you are looking for beauty, handcrafted elegance – you are going to love this engraved wooden letterbox.

Like all of our handmade boxes, these stunning wooden post boxes are handmade from Superior Grade English Oak, to order, in our Surrey Hills workshop with considerable care and attention to detail. They are well put together using traditional joinery techniques and feature a lid that won’t let the rain in. These are very large and steady, and unlike anything you would have seen before.

Our personalised wooden post boxes are sturdy and long-lasting, made to a generous size ideal for parcel deliveries when you are not home to receive them.

Adding a Post:

Our engraved wooden post boxes come with wall fittings on back of the posts box. We mount 2 vertical oak rails allowing the lid to open freely. Please be aware your post box will sit away from the wall when mounted. They can also be fixed to garden gates and fences. If you require a solid oak post this option is available. We will include a 1.5 metre oak post in the same finish of your choosing. This will need to be fixed to the post box after you take delivery.

Personalise your oak post box

Our oak post boxes come with your very own personalised engraving on the front of the box included in the price. You can have numbers, lettering or both in an either vertical and horizontal direction. Please contact us if you have any special requirements for your engraving. Fixing bolts will be supplied.

Finish:

As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak post box is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your post box untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here. 

Dimensions: 

Small – 20cm deep  x  30cm wide  x  50cm long  at the tallest point  (8” x 12” x 20”)

Large – 30cm deep  x  40cm wide  x  60cm long  at the tallest point  (12” x 16” x 24”)

Post – 8cm x 8cm x 1 metre  (3” x 3” x 39.5”)
