I built this fence for my wife after we had a horrible time winding up the chicken wire and stake fence we had put around our garden last year. I found the design in an old outdoor building book and took a little liberty on the design to fit our needs.
Each section is eight feet (except for two four foot short ones) and is held up by a wooden bracket staked into the ground. It is all pine, some of which is recycled/reclaimed wood that was left over from other projects. The fencing material is the same chicken wire we used last year just cut to fit into the frame.
One section takes about an hour to cut and assemble. There are 12 sections all together along 12 brackets. The amount of time in it was mostly a lot of repetitive cuts and assembles, but I really like the result.
The biggest tip I can give on this is to cut enough pieces to make three or more fence sections at a time. That way you don’t find yourself stopping to cut a lot of pieces over and over again. I did the last 4 pieces like that. Also, when assembling, don’t stake down the last 5 brackets until you have test fitted the frame together. Otherwise, you’ll have to pull up stakes and move them to get the last one or two to fit right.
