If you are looking for an interesting weekend project, why not build a decorative stone mailbox? If you are familiar with basic construction tools and know how to sew mud on a wall, this project can be completed in one day. And will completely change the appearance of your garden and mailbox area. If you do not have experience in masonry it can be shrewd to read a book about it before attempting to put it in stone.
Before starting construction, the work area should be leveled out. Put out stone for all 4 pages in the pattern you want to use. The base for stone mailbox ideas is a basic rectangle, standing at the end. A good size for most purposes is an 18-inch square, at 50 inches or higher. Cover the entire frame with chicken fence or stucco mesh. On the back or side of the shelf, you must install an access disc. Install a mailbox slip.

Extend a piece of wood 2 inches out from the front of the mailbox, firmly attached to the top of the pedestal. Suspend a ticket from the outer edge of this piece and secure it securely. Does this for each side as you go? Among Portland cement, add 1 cup of masonry binder to Portland blend. The mixture must be stiff so that it can hang in the wire cloth. Apply for one whole page at a time. Place the rocks for that page. Be sure to check the distance between the string and each stone, and use more Portland where the depth is too large. Where the stone must be inserted longer, just slide it into place.
