The brothers DiResta need a new mailbox, one that's so distinctive the mail carrier can't possibly mistake it for anyone else's on the block. Jimmy's design calls for a box that's strikingly similar to his partner.
The inner working part of the mail receptacle is a heavy cardboard tube that's normally used in concrete forms. With just a few decorations, the resemblance to John becomes striking.
A system of cords and six pulleys raise the central tube for mail deliveries. The mail falls into a storage drawer accessed from behind the mailbox.
