A local furniture maker in my home town was putting up this style of fence a few years ago. I’ve seen a half dozen or so thorughout town and always loved the look of this fence. It provides a beautiful barrier and helps to keep deer out of the yard while not obstructing the view of the surrounding woods.
Fortunately, I was able to track down the fence builder and he told me he was no longer building these fences and wanted to remain focused on building furniture instead. He was kind enough to share w/ me the basic materials list and then consulted with me throughout the project.
I am a complete novice and never build anything like this in the past so was a bit nervous to take on a project of this size with no practical experience. Fortunately, with the help of the funiture builder and a ton of close friends and my father, we were able to construct this and I am VERY pleased with the outcome. It’s a unique and beautiful design. Everyone who has seen it loves the look of this fence. It’s very warm and inviting without being a barrier to the nature and neighbors that surround us. We absolutely love this fence!
