Suppose you love to head to the garage and tinker around inside the hood of your car, whether your personal vehicle or a restoration project, then save a few of those parts and whip up a new mailbox. We aren’t exactly sure where the mail is going to go in this mailbox, but give the mail carrier enough time, and we’re sure they’ll be able to figure it out.
This V8 isn’t going to go anywhere, but if your mail carrier is a motorhead just like you, it’s sure to get his or her engine running. You could also install a little piece inside, so when they open the hatch for the mail, it makes an engine-starting sound.
Spin to Win
Creativity is always a win. If you roll up in a mail truck and see something like this, your first thought will probably be something like, “Why did they do this?” But as soon as you figure out what it is, you, as the mail carrier, will be pleased.
This Lazy Susan design means the carrier takes the mail to the spinning table and distributes the mail without having to go too far. It's built in a more rural area, which means the carrier would have had to go pretty far to hand it all out, so this item is probably a big help.
Expecting Some Big Packages
If you order lots of big items, then this might be the mailbox for you. Most people will just expect a package outside their front door, but if you like metalworking and have a little bit of experience, you can whip up this absolute unit of a mailbox that has enough space for even the biggest deliveries.
Look at that guy standing next to it – how tall do you think he is? he probably wasn't a basketball player, but we have to estimate at the very least five feet, probably something more like 5'5”. In that case, the mailbox might just reach seven feet tall.
We Can Only Wonder
Custom mailboxes are a pretty good way to get a handle on what kind of personality or hobbies the homeowner has, and this one doesn't really leave much to the imagination. Still, how many extra boat motors do you think he has lying around that he's able to take one, bury it deep enough in the ground, and hollow out the inside so that there's space for the mail?
Maybe this creative boat-lover just stopped at the junkyard and found a cheap chassis to use. One way or the other, this is the kind of mailbox that will be the talk of the street for a few weeks.
He's Had a Job Change
No longer grilling up the secret recipe at the Krusty Krab, Spongebob Squarepants has decided to try out a new career and start carrying mail. It seems to us that no matter where this cheerful yellow sponge works, he's going to have the time of his life. This official USPS mailbox in Florida looks ready to take your important mail and packages and send them on to the proper places.
All truth be told, we're a little more comfortable with Spongebob handling our mail than our food. Sponges are notoriously dirty and full of germs. Squidward is also probably happy that Spongebob is gone, too.
