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

Asked by Job98 March 12, 2018

Answers

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.

Are these safe to use for a raised garden bed?

Answers

Yes. Raw (cheap) untreated lumber. Yes they will eventually rot, just slap a new set together every 5 years. Get 3, cut 1 in half for the end pieces. 6x3 and easy to work with. Been using these for years with no problems.

Does this turn gray over time?

I bought and installed a couple of these this summer, and they still look new, but I'm assuming they will eventually gray.

do you need to leave a gap when installing

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

How many do I need for an 80 ft fence?

Asked by Mel June 26, 2018
6
Answers

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.

Could these be used to line a walk in closet?

Asked by Rick December 31, 2018

Answers

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.

No, they are rough sawn.

Any recommendations on a long-lasting, great looking stain or paint for a fence made of these?

Avoid Thompson's Water Seal, unless you want to recoat every year! And then after two or three years, you will want to replace the wood! Use an oil based exterior paint, instead, or Flood Fence and Deck stain (the old kind, not the stuff they sell now, which is water based. Good luck finding it in old stock.)

I rebuilt 8 sections of fence using around 200 of this product. Each and every one was a quality piece. Straight cut, no warped pieces, did not crack when screwed in.

This is a wonderful way to repair or replace a picket fence. 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.

I used this product to do a shiplap wall in my house. I purchased 4 different stains. The stain took to the wood very easily and was dry and ready to cut and hang in no time. Saved me tons of money over purchasing prefabricated/stained kits and I got the exact colors I wanted.
