A couple of months ago, I decided to lead the way so my fiance and I could install our own fencing.
It wasn’t easy, but we did it. It’s extremely heavy work with concrete posts.
But, the plan was: do it once and never again. If a panel needs replacing, no worries – just slide it out and pop a new one back in!
After we’ve done most of the fencing, we later decided we wanted to install more leading down our front drive.
But unfortunately where we’d ordered our original panels from never sold sloping ones, yet I wanted them all to be in the same style so it was uniform.
Altering fence panel looked extremely easy, despite not being able to find a tutorial online for it anywhere. But it didn’t stop me thinking twice about ordering a 5ft panel that I could reduce to 2ft on one side. It’s great having the opportunity to put back in to a giving community of free knowledge.
The trick I needed so solve was cutting the spars (the 1 inch wide horizontal wood strips that hold it all together) without cutting in to the slats.
The answer? A tenon saw.
My Dad (a shed and fencing man) has since watched my video and said the saw was a horrible/nasty one (something along those lines) but it worked fine for me.
Anyway, enough jibber jabber.
Here’s the visual tutorial!
