Hi - making a new veggie garden fence for my DW. She's been putting up
with me for all these years - she deserves a nice fence.
This is the style that she picked out:
I'm gonna make it in cedar (pretty clear stock): mortise & tenon the
ballusters into the rails, and mortise & tenon the rails into the
posts. That'll take me some time but I've got the time, and I know how
to do that.
Things I don't know:
1) Should I put glue in the mortises, or will the weather just bust the
2) I need to add some fasteners. Should I nail through all mortises?
Use what kind of nails (need to avoid stains)? I have nothing against
those epoxy-coated deck screws, but they are very obvious.
BTW, the fence will be 224' perimeter. but, like I said, I have the
time. Also, the posts will be slightly higher than shown in the pic:
