I've wanted to make a TiKi mailbox for awhile.....today my mailbox self destructed, so I had this guy sitting around.


cleaned him up a bit, chopped out a big mailbox size slot in his head-dress. I better finish him up and installed tomorrow if I want to get any mail on Monday. Although, the mail is usually either bills or junk, sooo...?

That looks cool! How do you plan on securing it into the ground?

it will sit on a concrete base (so it's not on dirt) and I will drive a couple of 4' long steel stakes into the ground behind it secured with nails.
I hope this works.

installed and ready to go
I guess tomorrow will tell (maybe he'll scare away the mail-man)

Captain Jack, I drove 3 steel stakes into the ground and then used 3" screws to attach them to the Tiki (it is sitting on a concrete base from the previous mailbox post)
It's pretty secure now but I'm sure that the screws will eventually loosen up and I'll have to think of something else.
