How do I build a wood mailbox post?

A wood maibox post is a frequent sight in rural and suburban areas. It is easy for you to build your own wooden mailbox post. Most lumber companies and home improvement centers have pre-cut posts, that allow for the part that must be buried in dirt or cement. This will save you cutting time and buying extra tools, if you don't already own them. A hole must be dug deep enough to hold the wooden mailbox securely in the ground, whether it is being set in quick set cement or just in soil. In areas where there is a lot of freezing and thawing in the winter, a mailbox post set in cement is the best choice.
