David builds a new delivery destination

20 Nov 2019

“This is the sort of thing retired architects do with too much time on their hands,” according to David Wood, a retired architect who recently made this secure postbox out of plywood and various recycled bits for his Hawke’s Bay area home.

The walls are painted in Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Touchstone and a roof in Resene Sonyx 101 tinted to Resene Titania – both leftover from painting the house and garden walls.

“Training of the newspaper deliverer is ongoing, however,” says David, “as he or she is yet to be convinced that the new box is indeed big enough to take even Saturday’s copy.

“But the customer will prevail eventually.”
