How to Build Wooden Fence Panels

-       A wooden fence panel begins with making sure you have the correct tools for the job.

For example purposes we will be building a 6’ Cedar fence with 3 rails, post are set at 7’ centers

If you need to cut a picket to complete the panel you will need to use the 4’ level or an extra picket as a straight line and cut the picket vertically with a circular saw so that it fits in the panel appropriately.  Be sure to place this picket in the least obvious spot if possible.  For example do not use cut pieces at the end of a run or next to the home, column, or other. This will help to ensure the fence looks as fluid and professional as possible.
