Staining around chain line wires.


Thinking about doing a white chain link on wood posts and wood rails fence.
This gives an open view without looking institutional.
When using treated wood they say to wait 1 year before staining.
So if I build the fence then try to stain it I got to work around the chain link on the rails and posts. Fence has to go up right away.

So do I stain and wipe it off the chain link, use a tiny artist brush near the chain link and try to get very little on it?

any thoughts?

Thanks for any advice.

Chain link with wooden post? I've never seen that before, Why not steel post.

If you want the fence to be less visable then just use black coating fencing. It tricks the eye and it becomes less visable. White will stick out far more.

How does the link attach to the post?

In how many places?


Might be possible to run tape with masking paper down both sides, but would have to actually see what we're talking about to know.

Sounds like you plan to overlap the fencing across the posts. Don't. Install it in sections between the posts with tension bars offset a little from the posts. You might have to modify some brackets to hold the bars, but it would eliminate the staining issue and look a lot better.

If you do what ratherbefishin' advises and use a turnbuckle system of attachment, then all you have to do is remove each section to maintain your posts and rails.

The reason for no metal posts is they and the rails look institutional.

I like the idea of between the posts just not sure of how that would attach.

ON the post it would attach with large staples. Yes when close you will see it but not much.
