    A:  There is no groove. The photo shows two posts side-by-side. For the fencing material itself, search HomeDepot for "picket." And look for videos on the net that show the many ways you can construct your fence.

              The two two-packs that I bought were true to published measurements. At 3.75x3.75 inches, two of them needed some planing down to fit the 3.5x3.5 veranda post holders that I had, but I was lent a tool for that so it was fine. One of those two had a slight twist that I didn't notice until near the final stages of assembly, but not a big deal in the application. One of the posts was so wet and heavy that I couldn't use it straight away, but with a little re-design of the structure (a surround for an outdoor shower) I didn't need it for now. I also ordered a pack of four Western Red Cedar 2x4's and the color of those was much redder than the 4x4's. Again, no big deal in my application but it might be an issue for some.

              The only thing I don't like is the wood they choose for you is not what I would choose. More often than not there are warps or defects the limit the usage of a particular piece of lumber.

              Absolute rubbish
              I purchased 8 of these at my local HD. Within one week EVERY PNE had slit because they are using very young and green wood. TOTAL RUBBISH.

                The "4x4" dimension is larger than the traditional "nominal" size, and as such was unable to fit in the fence post holder I intended to use, causing a substitute post holder of diminished capability.

                These did not meet my expectations. They were split from the ends and the corners were missing long chunks on at least two of the four sides. Save your money and go with standard pressure treated 4x4x8s as these cedar posts were not of better quality.

                Posts were split and not uniform. Definitely not worth the price and made the project take longer.

                One of the posts had extensive insect damage and should have never been sold. Because of time constraints on the job, I had to fill the damage with epoxy so that the job could be finished on time.

                Inconsistent Quality, Poor Quality Control
                I bought two last month, and the quality was acceptable. Bought two more, and the quality is unacceptable. As another reviewer noted with his, one post is split on one end and shredded on the other end. The other post is heavy with moisture and loaded with knots throughout its length: definitely not good quality posts for use in fences. Now I have to work out a return, and I have a project that will go on hold. They could at least have some quality control before they ship these out: they are not inexpensive.
