Whether you live in the land of tropical breezes or just wish that you did, our MANATEE MAILBOX will bring an exotic air to your landscape.

The Manatee is the Gentle Giant that lives in the coastal waters off the Florida shores. This magnificent creature is not a fish, but an air breathing mammal, whose closest relative is the elephant.

As with many animals sharing this earth with man, the Manatee has become an endangered species, due in part to the influx of watercraft into their habitat.

 Our MANATEE MAILBOX is carved and sculpted by hand out of cedar to create the realistic lines and texture that brings it to life.

Construction starts with a standard U.S. Post Office approved mailbox, around which we construct a cage made out of exterior B.C. plywood. Then we cover the plywood with layers of Western Cedar. This gives the textured layered look of our MANATEE MAILBOX. The door and back are also covered in cedar for a finished look. A wooden base plate is added to the bottom for post mounting.

After construction, our Manatee is sent to the spray booth, to be covered inside and out with a protective layer of exterior paint. Then, he moves on to the art studio, where our artists add their own mix of realistic colors and details to bring him to life. We use only the finest exterior acrylic enamel in our painting. And as a final step, we add multiple coats of exterior polyurethane as a protective layer.

This method of layered, cedar construction and painting gives our MANATEE MAILBOX the strength and durability to withstand the elements for years to come.
