1 In order to build a fence post for wooden fence (A), cut a wooden post in 14 x 14 to 100 cm. Make 1 cm chamfer on each corner. Using a 5 x 20 square (B) and a 3 x 15 cm, make a cap (C). Cut cube (D), rectangles (E), and triangle (F). To form more ornaments for the wooden posts, cut a piece of wood 3 x 10cm (G) and add trim (H).


 2. To build the railing, cut two 5 × 10 cm long wooden planks to form the upper (I) and lower crossbars (J). Press and hold the crossbars (I, J) parallel to each other; Use a pencil to mark the position of the fence slats (L) mark. Attach a small bar 3 x 10-5 cm, to form additional support (K).

3. Using a saw and sandpaper, you can, of course make the wooden slats in the desired form. Here the slats have only one hole at the top.

4. Assemble all together. The posts are placed in the drive-in sleeves and fixed with machine screws. It is important to check that the fence posts are straight, so that the wooden fence does not bend. Attach the preassembled fence elements on the wooden post.
