Wind storms, hail storms and/or just upgrading your fencing around your backyard, the fence panels are now broken down and lay waste. You could just truck it off to the nearest dump, burn it and make a heck of a fire(not recommended), or recycle it. The wood planks are still mostly in good shape, a bit worn looking, but still in good shape.
Step 1: Supplies
You will need to have wood, old wood preferably. Please don't tear down your neighbors fence, you could wait till you do that all important(honey-do) fence upgrade or wait for the neighbors to upgrade. Check with your local fencing company, they may let you have the panels they are replacing. Please enjoy my first instructable!
You could use the standard butcher block standard of using glue, but I opt to use bolts instead..
