Attractive But Problematic
I have bought 9 packs of this now, and within every pack there is at least 25% of the pickets that need to be repaired with wood filler and / or wood glue. Sometimes there are staples in them, for no apparent reason. They also require extensive sanding prior to painting. Attractive enough when painted and installed, but not an easy job to get there.

    Great product.
    I recently received my 6 cases of 27 pickets this week. I was expecting a lot of waste according to some of the reviews. Not one of these were bad. I was very happy with the quality. I made my own fence and it looks great. I highly recommend.

      They should be ashamed to sell these like this.
      I NEVER expected these pickets to be the worse quality in a wood product, I have ever seen. I did call and complain and wanted to send pics, but the person said he had no email address for me to send pics. I paid $39 for 13 pickets and I got $10 back. I sanded what I could, but still the worse quality I have ever seen. Every single picket was horrible.

        Overall these were good pickets. I had a few that were twisted with slight cracks that I didn't want to use, but most were good.

        Hideous. Rough. Going Back. Too Rough to Paint.
        I might not have expected super smooth pickets. But in my wildest worst nightmare I never expected this crap. This is going back to the store. After I waited over a month to receive them. So extremely disappointed.

          Very nice fence slats of cedar wood. A rustic finish and that's what we expected. The 27 slats fit very well in the space we had. The finished product enhanced our carport!! I like the gothic tops on the slats. The slats were easily drilled and hung!! The slats are 3 1/2" wide, and not the 3 1/4" as stated in the posted information about the product. This actually worked better for us, but it might throw someone else off when measuring!!

          Pick your pickets with care. Lesson learned. Dont buy wet pickets. If they feel heavy, they are wet. I bought these just for the cedar planks to make a custom fence. Custom fence sections would be 6ft wide by 3 ft high at the highest point containing 11 pickets per section. (To add more work, she wanted the pickets "scalloped" on the fence, not straight across.) Pickets were wet so I had to dry them out. First thing I did was rip them into 2.9" wide planks to get the wood ready to build my custom fence. I could feel drops of water on my face as I ripped off one side of the the pickets with my table saw. I stacked them in evenly spaced layers on the leftover wood trims which were 1/4 thick. This gave the pickets air. The top layer of pickets I had to turn twice per day to make sure they dried evenly. I still lost a few because they warped as they dried out. When they finally dried, I was able to put 60 degree points on them, cut to length, and paint them. I re-stacked them to let the paint dry. Fence is looking good but it was a lot of work to save wet pickets.

            First, it's weird that both the 1" and the 5/8" thick pickets are spec'd as having an actual thickness of .625". I ordered the 1", and they were mostly .625" with a 3/4" or two in there. Second, they're really rough with a high percentage that are chipped/cracked (predictable) but my order also showed up soaking wet, which I couldn't tell (they were inside cardboard boxes, which were just a little damp) so when I opened them a day later, several were already moldy. Really delightful.
