Default Making your own fences

Making fences from stripwood

I have often been asked where did I buy my fences from, my reply has always been "I scratchbuilt them" So I thought I might share with you all how I make them.
I use 1/16" square for the main stringers, and stripwood for the struts. Contact adhesive is used to glue it all together, here in the UK it's called "EVO-STICK" or "BOSTICK" White wood glue is not recommended because it will take far too long to go off. With contact adhesive, it takes 2 minuets to adhere.
Photo "A" shows a finished and weathered fence.
Photo "B" shows a partly made fence and the wood needed to make another.
Photo "C" shows that I cut the stripwood down the middle for the struts.
Photo "D" shows the start of the fence.
Photo "E" the completed fence.
