How To Make a Garden Fence

It's time to make a garden fence! Keep unwanted animals out of your yard with a stylish barrier you make yourself!

To get started you'll need:

            Pencil                     Measuring tape                   Hammer                          Wire cutters

                                http://farnorthcorp.com/stryker-pro-cross-pein-hammer/                

       Rafter Square                Leveler Tool                      Clamps                             Safety Glasses

                                          

         Airgun staple                     Gloves               Staples 18g; crown 1/4”; length 1-1/2"

                                            

      Compound miter saw      Wood 8’x 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” and 8’ x 2-1/2" x 3/4"    Welded wire 14g 1 x 2 mesh

                                                                        

    

Step 1: For the legs, cut two 24” pieces of wood from the 1-1/2”x 1-1/2” wood. 

   Note: Make sure to use safety glasses!

                                           

Step 2: For the length, cut two 22” pieces of from the 2-1/2”x 3/4” wood. 

                                                     

Step 3: For the front of the frame, cut a piece of wire 26” x 15-1/2”.

   Note: Use the wire cutters and gloves.

                                              

Step 4: Make a 40-degree cut from the end of the two legs using the miter saw. This is to stick it into the ground.

   Note: Only 8” will go in the ground.

   

Step 5: Staple the 24” with the 22” wood with a staple gun. At this point, you should have a shape of a door frame.

   Note: Put 4 staples in for a stronghold and use the leveler and rafter square to make sure it's straight. Hold it               in place with a clamp.

                                       

Step 6: Measure 16” from top to bottom and staple the second wood that measures 22” inches.

   Note: use 4 staples for both sides. Use the leveler and rafter square to make sure it's straight.                                          

                                             

Step 7: Bent 2” inches with a hammer from each side of the wire and put it on top of the frame.

   Note: add a staple on each corner and in the middle of four sides. Add on more staples as needed.

             

              

And there you have it! Your new fence is easy to install and is perfect for preventing rabbits or other small animals from getting into your garden.
