Putting it all together (Part 4 Paling Fence Project)

Galavized joist screw
Once all the posts are in and lined up against the string line, its time to put the rails on. The rails will hold the palings so they need to be fairly solid timber (4" x 2") with plenty of wood to accommodate the number of nails being driven into them without splitting.


I usually use three rails on the fences I build.  One about  8"of the ground one 8" from the top of the fence and one in the middle. Of course if the fence is very low then just a top and bottom rail are required. To add extra strength to the fence cut the rail lengths so they span three posts and stagger the joins. Staggering the joins reduces the chances of the fence bending on a post with two or more joins.


Earlier on I would use 4" nails to attach the rails to the post but now I use galvanized joist screws. These little babies are fast and very strong. However they chew through battery power using a cordless drill. Its far better to use a powered screw driver.

Knowing the woodworking "terminology"
Written by Derryck

I was looking to define what woodwork is. Yes I've been doing it for years but to me it is a hobby and now a business. But I do have many friends to whom it is a trade. A trade is different from a business, for a trade requires your constant participation. Your generally self employed, employed o a contractor where you trade your time for money and therefore must go to work each day to make a wage. A business is different as a business is a method of getting work done that multiplies your time, uses it more effectively or leverages your time...

But I digress, so I'll talk more about business in another post. But today I'm looking to define that woodworking is. I found some enlightening words on the subject from Byron Branfield and I think it deserves a read....
