Wrapping this up on Monday. I just have to trim and cap the posts, and fill in the last little bit next to the neighbors house. I don't do a lot of fences, but this one was actually really fun to build. Plus I got to put my new df700 to work making the gates.

I'm gonna do another part of his property next month. It will incorporate two 8 ft wide sliding gates which should be pretty fun to build.

Very nice Aaron:thumbup:

What part of town is that in? I swear I've seen that yallow house in the last pic before. I guess there could be more than one yellow house around though:laughing:

Nice - silly question though - the galvanized panels was just for look/ interest?

Wow...nice work. I like the detail. Interesting use of metal panels integrated into the fence. Wise choice putting spacers in the wood frame like that to help with expansion and contraction...should help prevent the wood from warping too. Cool detail above the entrance gate.
I don't see the spacers.

Very nice. I wish we could convince our clients to "supe" up their fencing. They all want the C.L. handyman price. Though many times it is the Cities who dictate the look down here. Or a displeased neighbor.

Looks really good! Seeing this makes me wish I got the Domino 700 instead of the 500 but I really can't complain about that machine.
I wish I had both. The 700 is a little cumbersome and not really set up for 3/4 stock. I bought the Seneca adapter so it will take the 500 bits, I need to get the shims for it too.

That reminds me, HD has 6' stockade panels for $8 right now - I better get some for the really cheap customers....
