  • New Fence

    Hello
    I am looking for some advice on the best way to secure a shadowbox style fence to the posts. I've seen some that just nail the premade sections to the post and others that build them in place and I couldn't see how these were attached.
    Seems like a couple of nails on a fence section wouldn't be that strong. Would using a 2x4 hanger make sense?

    THANX

      Go to this site, there is 3 options, face nail, toe nail, mortise. For a beginner, the first 2 are your options. The diagram is on the left side near the bottom of the page..... I wouldn't use nails in the cross section, use triple coated screws instead, also predrill to ensure that the screw will stay in the right direction and you don't split your wood. You want at least 1 1/2" of thread going into the post. The ground does move a lot, this will keep it together better than nails.
