I built the fence in spring/summer 2013, from southern yellow pine, stained with a gray oil based transparent stain. The posts are topped with solar lights. It is 40’ long.

The pickets on the bottom of fence were added by my neighbor on other side of fence to contain his dogs, they were not part of the design.

This is Louisville which is why I used the Fleur de Lis design

The trellis was completed approx 2 weeks ago May 2014 and is made from cedar and is not fastened to the fence or the brick wall of the garage. It hangs freely from the hangers attached to the garage and fence.

Circle was made like a stop sign with splines between sections and pulled together with pinch dawgs. achieved the circle by spinning stop sign on my band saw with a gig. glued together with gorilla glue.

I like your fence design. Did you use a jig to cut the edges of the fence boards? Is there a bead on the middle rail board? Beautiful job.

Thanks for all the nice back pattin everybody,........................... Pat, I’m going to post a pic of the jig I used to cut the relief in the pickets. I put each picket in the jig/pattern (there were 2 toggle hold downs on the jig but I used them on something else) then ran the relief cut on my shaper with a bearing to ride against the pattern and a spiral cutter doing the work, I don’t think I had any chipout and there were a lot of pickets. If you look closely on the jig you can see 4 black marks on the long edge, that’s where the relief cut starts and stops.

there is not a bead on the mid rail, they do have a 45 degree bevel top and bottom.
