How to make a Sturdy Fence. Ok so today we
are going to show you how to build a nice
fence. So we already have the first step done.
We came out here a week ago and we dug the
holes and cemented them in. So we used a post
hole digger and we dug the holes two feet
deep. And then we filled them with cement.
And we did that all down the line. Also I
want to mention that we used a string and
the string goes all down the line. And that
makes sure that your posts are all in a straight
line. And you want to move the string a few
inches back so that you don’t break it when
you dig it. Also you want to place a level
on two sides of the pole to make sure it is
straight. Ok so the next step we are going
to do is put on some brackets. The neighbor
was nice and let us use his fence post to
be the corner of our fence post. What we are
to do is put on these brackets so that we
have two at the bottom. These are to hold
what is called the kicker board. This is going
to be the bottom which gives the fence a pretty
look and makes it tough at the bottom. So
we have two brackets for that and as we move
up. We have one, two, and three. So three
brackets. You see the neighbors have two brackets
there. But what happens is over time the boards
warp if you don’t have a cross beam in the
middle. So we are going to use that middle
bracket to keep that from warping. You are
going to go and measure out all the brackets.
And put those brackets on each fence post.
We are going to have the inside of the brackets
inside our yard. If you want the cross beams
to be outside of your yard, you would flip
this around so that the flat part here would
be on this side. So it just depends on how
you want the fence. I like the beams on the
inside to discourage neighbor kids from climbing
the fence as it will just be a flat board
on the outside so nothing to really climb
on. Some people like the pretty side to be
on the inside. So now you can see what it
looks like with the kicker board in place.
You end up with four bolts. So you see what
it looks like on the inside. And if you plan
it right then the kicker boards will meet
there. And this is what it looks like on the
inside. Now we have a panel completed. So
what we will do is take these boards and place
them level and then screw them in.We put in
two screws for each panel, two screws each
time it meets the brace. Ok so we are at the
last board. It wouldn’t quite fit so we had
to cut about an inch off. And then I cut another
angle otherwise it would have been square
and I cut a little too much so be careful
that you try to match it. Anyways it is he
last one so nobody will really see it. Then
I am going to squeeze that in there. And put
the last few screws in. And the last screw,
here goes! Wooh! Now look at the fence we
made. Thanks for watching! Don’t forget to
