« Part 22: Been gone a while, not much, but some done... Part 23 of Not quite in the workshop... series Part 24: Fence Framing is done! Gave the nailer a good workout! »

I have been back off of vacation a little over a week, and have gotten somewhat caught up on things. The 2 remaining posts were concreted and cured, and then they were measured, leveled and cut. The top rails were measured, cut and installed, now I am working on the bottom. 3 of 8 are in!

Now for the problem. Where are the other 8 PT 2×4s? I am not certain, but I think I left out lumber for the center rails, which is a HUGE problem. My fence design is a 3 rail design to give lateral support to high wind loads. I think I need to get to to the BORG and get a few more 2×4s…

This project is giving my B&D miter saw, HF compressor, and nailer is also getting a serious workout. So far everything is working flawlessly…

Overall, the progress I am presently making isn’t exactly what I would like, but it is without a doubt, moving forward… I am having to sneak a few boards here, a few boards there…

The tools get a workout, the lumber gets used up…sounds like you are making good progress.
