I thought I would share what I am working on. As everyone knows my house forclosed and I ended up renting the house right next door to it. Yes, it’s very difficult to watch workers go in and out over there doing god knows what. Life goes on. Anyhow, I have an agreement to fix this place up if the rent stays down some. So one of the tasks I have is to rebuild the fence. This is the first section of fencing. I still have about 15 more sections and then a gate.
The reason I am posting this here is offer a blog on how to make this particular fence. If there is enough interest I can take you through step by step as I make the next section. Its not furniture but its woodwork, and surprisingly enough it’s actually been kind of fun.
This fence was assembled at home depot in a different fashion. The landlord and I agreed it was cheaper to purchase an assembled section and take it apart rather then purchase seperate boards. After thinking about it longer I think we were wrong. LOL. Anyhow, you can see the nail holes from where it was assembled to some 2×4’s. I took the 2×4’s off all the slats (comes in an 8’ section) and used them again for the top, middle, and bottom rails. I am using 4×4 posts as well.
Anyhow, just thought I’d share why there was visible nail holes. I believe I will try to make this look rustic and mimic the use of reclaimed lumber, even though that was not the case.
Again, if there is enough interest I will write a “how-to” blog. Let me know
