The Brown Pelican is a frequent visitor to the shores, beaches, ports,
and docks in the coastal regions of the United States. Our PELICAN MAILBOX
will bring the nautical, seaside look that is so popular today to your
Our PELICAN 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 PELICAN 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 Pelican 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 PELICAN
MAILBOX the strength and durability to withstand the elements for years
