ok, have you been remodeling your house and have some hardwood floor board left? Well we did, most of them are rejects, some were just left over. So, me and my dad made this little fence around shed in our backyard. It took about 2-3 hours.

Step 1: Tools

Ok, you will need some tools.

<p>What an innovative fencing design that you have shared.The materials and tools that you have used in this fence is awesome.Absolutely it is a great for those who just want to have small fence around a garden or front lawn that not only enhance the beauty but also provide safety and security.You can see more fencing design at <a href="http://www.californiafenceco.com/vinyl-fencing.html" rel="nofollow">California <br>Fence Company</a>.Nicely done.</p>
quite FENCy (phun intended:p)
Very nicely done. It came out really well. Great use of materials and tools.
Sweet! Look forward to doing this... in my room. :-)<br/><br/><sub>Seriously, I'm not kidding.</sub><br/>
That's a very neat job - are you planning to put anything behind the fence? Plant pots, for instance?<br/><br/>If you want to improve the Instructable, maybe break up step two into several steps - I have never used a table saw or a compound mitre saw, and it would have been interesting to see more of the <em>how</em> as well as the result.<br/><br/>Also, did the wood need any treatment to help it survive the elements, or is your second Instructable going to be &quot;How to paint a picket fence&quot;?<br/><br/><sub>That <em>is</em> a picket fence, isn't it?</sub><br/>
Thanks, and yes i will plant something behind it. I will paint the fence later on, just haven't done it yet. Yes, it is a picket fence.
Actually, I've never used a nail gun either. I feel deprived.
It could be done with just hand tools. A saw and a mitre box would do the cutting, and a regular old hammer and nails would work for attching. Sure, it's MUCH easier and MUCH faster with the power tools, but they aren't required. Also, I would create a spacer of some sort. Nail up a fence "tine", then hold the spacer next to it, and put up the next fence "tine". Nail it, and repeat.
i forgot to mention that, i did make a spacer, i took two boards and nailed them together.
