Yeah - the default standards for a sidewalk unit is, what, 4 or 5 foot?


At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.

24 pickets between the post. Guess the spacing and do the math. Iím seeing closer to 12 than 8.

Yeah, that's why I said maybe..... it does look to be more like 10 or 12 ft. between.

The only way this has any hope of working is if at least 2 of the vertical slats, per span, is buried like a post.

Even then, it's a long-shot. There are just too many ways for a fence like this to warp and twist.
