Beautiful Cedar Mailbox Post.
This Post was very easy to assemble and install with the included instructions. I did sand the wood with 80 grit and finished sanding with 120 grit on my handheld orbital sander. The sanding was easy since the wood is very soft. I then put 3 coats of spar varnish on it to preserve the color of the cedar for years to come. Someone had taken out our other mailbox that was cemented in the ground on a 4x4 post so I sawed off what was left sticking up at ground level and installed a couple of brackets to the new one just to stiffen it up a bit more. It was not necessary but I liked the added strength. I'll plant flowers at the base to hide the brackets. The post itself was a was a great value at only $40!

    Not stable enough
    I pounded the steel into the post and then set the steel in concrete up to the base of the post (assuring everything was plumb in both directions). Upon mounting the mailbox I found that the entire assembly wobbled like it was on a spring when the mailbox door was open and shut. Not good. To rectify the situation I added 1x4 braces on each side and in the back. The post is now solid but not the simple look I was hoping for

      Make sure to sand first
      The product was easy to assemble. I was surprised how rough the lumber was. I was expecting alot better quality for the money. After sanding and several coats of polyurethane, it turned out amazing. Great product but be prepared to work to make it look nice.

        Looks great, works well although we have sandy soil, so needed to reinforce it a bit. Still, looks good, is secure, we’re happy.

        Terrible quality
        My current mailbox post is falling apart and shaking during high wind, so decided to replace it with something similar. After googling and researching found this post and decided to order. When it arrived in half-damaged box, I wasn't happy already. But this is Home Depot fault for bad packaging. Now to the post -- I don't know why, but when I took it out of the box, there was a lot of dust (see picture). Two out of four sides of the post weren't sanded properly and look just ugly. WHY? Was it hard? I can sand it myself, I can even paint it to hide ugliness of red/white wood. But what's the point of paying triple price of standard 4x4 post if I need to do it myself? I would say avoid.

          Descent product.
          For the price, this is a great option! Many people complain about the rough cut wood and knots. I just took a belt sander and removed all the grooves. Now it looks amazing! The metal “no-dig” mounting stake isn’t the greatest and doesnt secure the post. After installation the post remains wobbly. I purchased a ground screw post anchor separately to secure the post.

            I like the design. It was easy to install and looks good. The only issue is that the included screws are junk...in every case, the entire head of the screw just twisted off while installing the screw. I had some extra wood screws at the house and just used those in place of the defective ones included in the kit.

              Make your own!
              The absolute WORST quality wood, and the stake could definitely be longer.

              Ensuring that it is level perpendicularly on all sides takes some finesse. A rain saturated ground plays a factor. Nonetheless, assembly is straight forward and easy. A small sledge hammer is required. Excellent product with hardware included.

              This was very easy to assemble by a female Senior! It looks beautiful in my backyard on a raised wall. WHAT!!?? A mailbox in the backyard you say?? YEP!! I am using it for a bird house stand, not a mailbox holder. It looks beautiful with my wooden bird house on it!! The kit for me was much better than buying the wood, measuring the wood, cutting the wood, buying the screws, etc.
