Q:could i use this to replace boards in my outdoor cedar furniture
by|Oct 13, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  Mike, These are designed to be used as backer rails to build new or repair an existing fence panel. This product has not been tested on how much weight it can hold to be used as making outdoor furniture.

by|Oct 13, 2022

    A:  The cedar wood is rough so if you do not mind that finish and the size works for your project, I don't see why you could not use it to replace components of your outdoor furniture. After all, it is meant to be used outdoors in the elements.

              A:  Yes--two literal inches by four literal inches. Not the usual 1.5 by 3.5.

              by|Dec 18, 2020

                A:  ARGH conflicting answers on dimensions. Can someone please provide the actual dimensions? There are three likely answers, and only one is correct. 2.00" x 4.00" 1.75" x 3.75" 1.50" x 3.50"

                  Great rails for a rustic look, weather resistant fence. I originally used 3 of the 6 foot rails, spaced horizontally, for each section, between two of the cedar 4x4 posts with the gothic top. I stained them all with transparent cedar natural tone stain (also avail. at HD) before even putting them up. They withstood our rugged northern Michigan winter; even the boards near the road stood up to our snow plows. I've gotten lots of compliments on the fence and the shade garden that it protects. This summer, I added 2 more rails between each section, as well as a gated section, to keep the deer herd from sticking their heads into the garden and chewing off my flower buds. Recommend.

                    Rough & wet, as described
                    They all appear solid. The surface is very rough, but the dimensions are 1.75 x 3.75 (actual) so even with cleaning up they will probably be bigger than a standard 2x4 (nominal). The wood is very wet, so I may have to wait a week before doing anything with it.
