The Overland Mailbox with Ipe Wood is classic and beautiful. With simple clean lines, it looks good just about anywhere. This is a statement piece for your new home or an excellent replacement for that old stone slab that’s seen better days. This version, with Ipe wood cladding on the front, will age gracefully and last just about forever.
The Ipe used will come to you in a rich buttery brown color. It is an incredibly hard wood that handles weather well - without maintenance, it will turn to a silvery gray.
The Overland can be anchored as is to any existing concrete or stone pad. In case no pad exists, we provide an anchoring post consisting of a ¼” plate welded to a 20” long 3” x 3” steel tube to be set into concrete. Holes in the ¼” plate line up with the anchoring holes in the base of the box, allowing easy installation anywhere desired. All Overland mailboxes come with the anchor plate.
We build and deliver this mailbox in clean raw hot rolled steel. Much like the grain in wood, this dark steel finish comes with some variety of heat marks from the raw steel cooling in the steel mill. Most people let this mailbox develop a handsome rust patina over time. The pictures show it at the tail end of this process as well as the raw steel look as we deliver it.
