Just thought I would share my mailbox.
Could not have done it without help from Wes at House of Tiki!
scare the bills away

First I took one of the Shaka Tikis down to the local lumber yard and had them cut it in half.
Then Skil saw, chisels, and hard work.
Then I glued it back together around a 4x4 post.
Since these pics my Daughter made me a small surfboard in her woodshop class. We painted it red and put a pin-strip down the center for a stringer.
It is now the mail to be sent flag.

Nice job! How much did they charge you to cut the tiki in half (if you don't mind sharing)? I want to get the end trimmed off mine...
