Hi everyone
These are projects i made from using 9 yr old reclaimed fence boards.

Nine years ago i built a 500 ft pressure treated fence for a couple and then a while ago they decided to cut the property in half and sell one half so they took down 100 ft of the fence and gave it back to me.

I built a 6 ft waterfall , 7 ft wishing well a planter box and a 4 ft square water pond with a little fountain. not shown
I had exactly enough boards for everything.

REally good work, John. I think the nine years improved the material.

Thanks Thos. Angle
The boards have a greenish blue pastel colour to them. They look pretty good .

This is a great set of projects. I am always attracted to using recycled lumber and it has its own unique charter and in your case fun bragging rights. Good work!
