Bin screen and mailbox

Latest project just completed, Bunnings merbau decking and ply, left over cover sheets of colorbond and a bit of pine and hardwood framing. Clear gloss finish, all from leftovers and a bit of planning.

Re: bin screen and mailbox.

Hi @cadsman,


Many thanks for sharing your project. It all looks very neat, well done. That's a fantastic way of disguising your bins and housing a letterbox at the same time. I'm surprised you've managed to get such a great curve out of the Colorbond sheet. Did that take much work?


We look forward to seeing what other projects you have going on around your house and garden.




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Re: bin screen and mailbox.

The curved colorbond sheeting were the left over cover sheets for the pre-curved fence sheets I ordered to match the bull nose roof on the house. 

I didn't curve it myself!!  I will post the hog box I made for cooking whole pigs and/of lambs when I take some pictures of it.
