MITREPLAN - CONSTRUCT A TIMBER LETTERBOX - Kevin Farrell

Kevin shows us how to construct a timber letterbox using the Mitre 10 MitrePlan.

You'll need good durable timber - we use exterior grade plywood. You'll also need nails, screws, putty and glue. The glue we use is  AquadhereTradesman's Choice from the Selleys range, which is weather resistant and perfect for this job.

Lastly you'll need hinges, a hasp and staple.

Before measuring out and cutting the first piece, ensure that at least one end of the timber board is perfectly square by checking with a carpenter's square. Most pieces simply butt joined together, and each piece must be cut perfectly square to be both strong and neat.

Follow the MitrePlan for all the details.

Lastly, putty all the nail holes with Selleys Plastic Wood. Take off the sharp edges with sandpaper and cork.

Paint or stain and fix to a post or fence.

MitrePlans for this and many other DIY projects are available at Mitre 10 stores.
