We needed a new mailbox, but I couldn’t find an
off-the-shelf version that I liked. So I decided to
build my own. As I’ve always admired the work of Greene
and Greene, the architect brothers who fused Asian design
with Arts and Crafts style during the early 20th century, I
thought it would be cool to include some of their signature
elements in my mailbox: Pronounced joints with heavily
rounded edges create the structure, stepped profiles
accentuate the lid, and faceted pegs add visual interest
and overall balance. The pegs also hide the screws used to
assemble the box.
