Recycled Fence From Discarded Fence Boards

The old white picket fence around our corner lot had rotted away and though we considered just removing it, we ultimately decided we wanted a new fence.

We looked at some cheap fencing ideas and we decided to build it ourselves.

I designed and constructed the new one around a supply of salvaged redwood fence boards and posts, as well as some miscellaneous lengths of salvaged, full-dimension redwood lumber.

I wanted a fun and inviting look, so I incorporated a long wave that spans two sections (16 ft./~4.8 meters). Because I needed to trim, plane and route various parts (as well as removing any stray nails and screws), it took much longer than if I had simply purchased new lumber, but I was very pleased by the result.

Several years on, I'm now constructing the matching gates we initially omitted -- though with mostly new materials for the gate frames since I wasn't able to locate enough old 2x4s.

Beautiful fence, I love the waves. I just installed a new fence myself (we went with vinyl) and it’s amazing how much it can change the look of a yard.
