This wood picket fence was no walk in the park. I did a lot of the work in our workshop where I cut the four sides of each picket to form the pointed pickets. After I did that a few hundred times, I cut dual dados on each of the 6×6 fence posts. On-site it was just a matter of putting the fence together. I set my posts 8 ft apart and then mounted two 1×4’s inset between the posts. I then nailed in all the pickets and sandwiched them in by adding two more 1×4’ fascia boards. When insetting rails/fascia boards like this, it’s imperative that the cuts be precise in both length and angle. After I finished the fence, I stepped back and was really impressed with the final product. See more images of this picket fence.
