This is the first fence I have ever made from scratch. Everything really came together quite well. The entire project is cedar. All the fastening hardware is stainless steel, as steel fasteners will discolor and streak the cedar. The posts are 6” square; heavy but really anchor the panels physically and visually. The customer is an architect and came up with the original plan, I just helped make some minor modifications and suggestions from the veiwpoint of the builder and wood guy. There are over 30 panels total. I made a jig/table for constructing the 8’ panels. I made and installed all the 8’ panels first, then came back and made all the shorter panels and gates to “fill in the spaces”.
