I made a mail box block but I'm wondering if I can keep it to one block instead of making a new one for every type of wood. I also want it to be customizable and utilize textures from the chisel mod and have the options to change the two different textures on it to whatever variant from the chisel mod. I don't know how to make it a metadata variable and have the .json model file use that variable when rendered.

The simplest method is to use ore dictionaries in the crafting recipe so that any type of wood will craft the same thing. Block states, as far as I know, aren't possible yet without coding.
