That said, I built that fence when it came out and I use it on almost every
project. It's a pleasure to use, will serve you well and definitely a great
project to build. Making it calls for a couple of precision cuts (you can

poster, both FWW and Pat Warner deserve to be compensated for their
efforts. There is also a fairly complete materials list available on
