    Nice little Sunday project

    I built this little picket fence to make a play area for our puppy dog next to the pool. Was a fun project!

    saving this pic, gives me an idea for a later project for my little dogs.... very nice indeed! well done... dont think I have the skill to cut the pickets with a curve edge like you have done though... but that does make the fence!

    Re: Nice little Sunday project

    The curve cut was the easiest part of the whole project. When building I left the pickets high at the tops. When finished I used a piece of neoprene or surgical tubing that I happen to have in my shop. I tacked the tubing to each post in a section and let the tubing hang down till the middle of the curve was exactly two inches over the top rail. The tubing lays in a perfect fair curve every time. I traced the curve onto the pickets with a pencil and then removed the tubing and cut the marked curve with a jigsaw. I suppose you could use string, but the tubing is heavy and lays down a nice smooth arc.
    Hope this explanation helps!
