xwingmailbox X wing mailboxCraig Smith, whose clever projects have been featured in MAKE and Make: Online a bunch of times (see links below) has written in again to share his excellent X-wing mailbox.

I made this so long ago, it is actually in need of weathering repairs and repainting. I never expected it to survive vandalism or theft for half a decade. But at five feet long and a five foot wingspan, theft would be quite difficult. Everybody from letter carriers to pizza delivery go out of their way to say how much they like it. There is a street about 10 miles away where older guys have a mailbox rivalry with custom car, firetruck and airplane mailboxes, I should mail them a photo.
