Mailbox post for 3 mailboxes

I'm looking for ideas on how to build a mailbox post to hold 3 mailboxes. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Up here if there is more than one mailbox, typically a "T" is made and the mailboxes attached to the crossbar. When there gets more than about 4 or 5, it looks more like an upside down "U".

Hope this helps.

Typically, you can fit a piece of 1 by inside the bottom flanges of a standard mail box.

Following the "T" theme, position the 1 bys on the "T" and attach the mail boxes.

BTDT but only 2 mail boxes.

Use the right tool for the job.

Just build a "T" and make sure that it is strong enough to stay horizontal even under a heavy snow load.

Well, I think you should go with online websites. You can readily get all types of mailboxes through online according to your choices.
