8’Tall x 6’Wide Board-On-Board Pre-Fab Wood Fence Panels $79.99 ea + tax

Payment: only cash or PayPal \ price is firm … $79.99 ea. + tax

Description- New 8 ft tall x 6 ft wide pre-fabricated fence panels (sections) built on 4 – Nominal 2 x 4 (1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ actual) White Wood (WW) rails with 8 – Round Head 6d ring shank galvanized 1-7/8″ x 13 ga nails per picket \ the pickets are new rough sawn 1 x 6’s (11/16″ <≈> 5/8″ actual thickness x 5-1/4″ <≈> 5-7/8″ actual width) There are usually 23-24 pickets per panel, counting the transition picket that comes with it. 

Quantity – … no minimum purchase quantity required

Species: Mix of mostly Loblolly Pine (Pinus Taeda) along with some Slash Pine (Pinus Elliottii) (In the U.S. these are two of the ten Southern Yellow Pines (SYP)… the eight others being: Black, Jack, Jersey, Longleaf, North Carolina, Oldfield, Shortleaf, and Virginia Pine )

Origin: tree farms in Brazil (sustainable resource reforesting the burned out rainforest … plus a negative carbon foot print … a big one … huge)

TechNote#1: We, in the U.S., have our own pine tree farm … we call it the Southeastern U.S. From about Tyler, Texas, to the Atlantic Ocean and from the Mason-Dixon Line to the Gulf of Mexico, the southeast is virtually one big Southern Yellow Pine tree farm. However, the lumber from those trees is too unstable to be useful as a fence picket. Because? … SYP grows like a weed in the summer, producing a wide pithy wood ring; … but its growth almost stops in the winter, depositing a very narrow, very hard, winter ring. This growth pattern combined with the Southern Yellow Pines’ incredible strength, makes for very unstable lumber. Fortunately for us, that same pine cone planted along the equator, where there are no seasons, grows up to be a tree that comes back to us with no hard winter ring, … and a whole lot more stable. 

TechNote#2: This is NOT, … I repeat … NOT “Brazilian Pine”. Brazilian Pine is the Candelabra Tree (Araucaria angustifolia). The Brazilian Candelabra Tree is an internationally designated endangered species. If you get caught with it, or even it’s seeds, you’re gonna get to meet some international ivory smugglers … because you’re gonna be in the same cell with them.

Fine Print: only cash (US Currency) or PayPal \ regarding PayPal … if PayPal is used to pay, there is a 3-1/3% transaction fee that we are charged on our end that we have to recover \ prices subject to change without notice \ no minimum purchase quantity (we do, however, reserve the right to determine maximum purchase quantity per order and/or per customer) \ all sales are final \ the sales tax rate in Dallas is 8-1/4% \ no delivery \ price is firm \ no warranties implied or otherwise \ first-come-first-serve\ this not an offer to sell 

Where \ When \ How — Our shop is in a small 60’s vintage industrial park in North Dallas about 1/2 mile due southwest of LBJ (I-635) & I-35. The nearest large intersection is Royal Lane & I-35E. Our address is 2261 Crown Road, Building#107, Dallas, Texas, 75229. The entrance to the parking lot is from the north side of Crown Rd. about halfway between Newberry and Goodnight. Our building is the very last one on the right (at the north end of the parking lot). We’re open six days a week, Monday thru Saturday, 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If the front glass door is locked … which it usually is when Lupé or Joe is there by himself … just go around to the big roll up doors on the south side of the building. Anyone in there can either help you or point you towards someone who can. 

One more thing … all these warehouses and parking lots look the same; … so, when you get to where you think we’re supposed to be and you still can’t find us, call or text, and we’ll send out a search party.

(A trick to finding us: …… once you’re going west on Crown … and you get to where the pavement changes from concrete to hot top (asphalt), start counting telephone poles after the huge tree on the right. (You’ll know it when you see it) Turn right in between poles number three and number four. Then go (north) all the way to the back … we’re the last building on the right.)

Note: … bring your own ratchet straps … none of the following, nor any combination thereof, will do the job: rope, bungees, string, bathrobe ties, bubble gum, bailing wire, duck tape, crossed fingers, and/or prayer 

Just in case you missed it above – only cash (US Currency) or PayPal / price is firm … $79.99 ea. plus tax

TechNote#3: These panels are fabricated here at our shop … they are our design (Patent Pending). The bottom rail (2×4) is set an inch and a half up from the bottom of the pickets, so that … once you have your Rot Boards (aka Kicker Boards) down where you want them, you can throw your tape, level, and string line, up on your back porch … you won’t need them any longer. You just set our panels down on the Rot Board, screw them to the brackets, and walk off. You’re done. Go back to watching football.

TechNote4: We refer to our white raw panel as “blanks” Included in the photo gallery below are some pictures of what a home owner’s finished fence might look like properly sealed and with a decorative top trim added. As you can see, the finished fence is virtually indistinguishable from similarly sealed Western Red Cedar. 

TechNote#5: Any of the Southern Yellow Pines (SYP) are at least two or three times as strong as any of the cedars, including Western Red Cedar. In fact, kiln dried to something like 12%, SYP … pound for pound … is stronger than steel. (ModulusOfRupture lbf/in2: Western Red Cedar … about 5,200 \ Loblolly Pine … about 13,000 and Slash Pine … about 16,000)

TechNote#6: All the pines have the same functional lifetime as the cedars, including Western Red Cedar (WRC), … when both are 1) installed the same, 2) erected on the same frame work, and 3) maintained the same with a petroleum oil based sealer.

TechNote#7: A good load of these panels for a half ton pick up is 5 – 10 and for a dual axle trailer, 20 – 30. Although, the last time I checked, the records were 23 and 80-something, respectively. (“The Record” being defined as having made it out of the parking lot)

TechNote#8: You may or may not have noticed, but the grade of this picket is not mentioned anywhere above. That’s because there isn’t one. I’ll explain … here in North America there is a universally agreed upon grading system for any lumber product produced by any mill. However … in Brazil they have no idea what you’re talking about when you bring up the subject of lumber grades. All they want to know is your dimensions in millimeters and how many you want. With your requirements in hand, they go cut down that many trees off their tree farm and saw them up into the dimensions you requested. Your lumber is then bundled, banded, loaded into containers, and sent to the port. Not very impressive quality control one would think, … until you notice that all the off-fall lumber that goes into our fencing up here, is left lying on the ground down there. We’re getting the best of the tree with no prior selection … the folks at the tree farm just don’t see that there’s really any need to grade it. We’re inclined to agree with them.

TechNote#9: Historically, the primary reason for choosing Western Red Cedar fencing over other species (spruce, pine, fir, redwood, larch, incense cedar, etc. ) has been that it lasted longer than the others.

And Western Red Cedar really did last longer back when fences were nailed up and then just left for mother nature to destroy. She could get the job done faster on the species that weren’t Western Red Cedar. And she did.

However, the advent of preserving fences with oil based sealers has equalized the life expectancies of all the species of wood that we use for fences here in the Metroplex; … including Western Red Cedar. In other words, all species are going last the same amount of time ……… IF … they’re properly saturated with an oil based sealer and kept that way . 

Any wood that we commonly use here for exterior products, when saturated with an oil based sealer and kept that way, is going to last 30 – 60 years, whatever species it is and whatever the exterior use … your deck … your redwood picnic table … the wood gnome in your garden … whatever. (yes,I know that 30-60 years sounds like an exaggeration. But just think about it … oil is already somewhere around 165 million years old when you get it.) 

So … if you’re going to properly maintain your fence with an oil based sealer, and you are going to buy Western Red Cedar ONLY to get extra lifetime, you’re wasting your money. (There are a lot of very good reasons to use cedar, but when Cedar is kept properly sealed, longevity isn’t one of them) Any of the species that we use here in the Metroplex to build a wood fence will do the job … that is … IF you’re going to take care of it. But if your fence isn’t going to be taken care of, i.e., isn’t going to be kept properly sealed with an oil based sealer, then Western Red Cedar is your best buy … it will last longer than everything else because it already has some oil in it … cedar oil … that’s why it smells so good.
