Questions & Answers

How many of these pieces do i need if I need to cover 120ft

Asked by: Job98
412 by doing the math of 120 times 12 inches divided by 3.5 but I would buy more and return the ones you don't end up using.

do you need to leave a gap when installing

Asked by: ah
No. These pickets will shrink slightly and will leave a gap even if abutted at installation.

Could these be used to line a walk in closet?
Asked by: Rick
Truth? You bet! We are actually considering doing just that. It is real cedar and very easy to work with and if you want a smooth surface, this would go through a planer very easily. Plus it smells good and looks good.

How many do I need for an 80 ft fence?

How many do I need for an 80 ft fence?
Asked by: Mel
On average, 3 per foot (that's 9.5 inches of board, with spaces in between) However, if you leave less space (good luck, if the boards are not straight) or more space, it will vary. 240 would be average. Consider, as well, whether the boards are very wet (as usual) or dried. They will shrink and warp if wet, so your nice spacing will disappear. For nice projects I've gone to using Kiln Dried ones available elsewhere.

5/8 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 6 ft. Western Red Cedar Dog-Ear Fence Picket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some good, some bad I have bought nearly 1,000 of these for a large backyard fence. I had to go though by hand one by one to examine each piece because probably 40% are junk. They are split, gouged, bent, warped, broken, or otherwise damaged. I even had quite a number that were covered in bird droppings. Then the store clerk came up to me while I was sorting through trying to find decent usable pieces and expressed his irritation with me because I was creating more work for him and he would have to restack the junk, discarded pieces. For the amount of money I spend at this store I am very disappointed in the quality of merchandise as well as the “service” and attitudes of employees.

Western Red Cedar can and does last decades in our tropical climate as I was purchasing these as replacements for some that were part of a fence put up in 1985 and the vast majority of the original pickets were still doing their job but just needed to be tapped back in place or screwed back in place as that is what I did. I have to admit that I went through many pickets (stacking the rejects nice and uniformly aside) in order to get ones that had smaller knots as the ones with large knots were the ones that did not last. Red Cedar is a soft wood and so is very easy to install (I suggest using decking screws), I did not experience any pickets splitting when installing. The color is beautiful but if you don't stain them, they will go grey over time.

I also stain it with semi transparent water proofing for extra long color maintenance. Only problem I have is I have to select the pickets at time of purchase because about 20% of them are not suitable due to large or numerous knots.
