I thought i posted this project but i guess i was so busy i forgot
This is a 500 foot cedar fence i did this past summer in my yard . I saved thousands of dollars by cutting all of the lumber myself including peeling every post . The fence is 6 ft tall .

Hi John.

Nice looking job on the fence.

Looks like you were set up to mass produce the parts.

The cedar was fresh out of the mill so i decided to let it dry out for a year before i seal it .
