I am repairing a slightly over built wooden fence that I built about 30 years ago. 4x6 posts 2x4 intermediate rails and a 4x6 top rail. It was all in good shape except the top rail witch in spite of being pressure treated wood it roted. So off with the old and on with the new but ... I had to round over all of the edges and add curfs to the bottom. that stuff is heavy and messes up your tooling and did I mention that a 20' pt 4x6 is really heavy.
I forgot how much I dislike working with pressure treated wood. :thumbdown:

ZULU: MENARD LUMBER $65.66 MENARD is a large home center chain located in the mid to north central plains. FWIW, the owner of the chain has sponsored an indy car and has a son that runs in NASCAR.

DADDY GLOVES: You said "slightly overbuilt". What does the fence contain? Posts and top rail are edging into Rhino, Bison range :roll:

That stuff is indeed nasty. Protect from the sawdust! And I've been advised not to burn the scraps, either.
