Im making a stone fence, not a narrow rock wall but an actual fence. Would I have a problem doing it like this concerning the expansion aspect of bluestone? Thanks

Will you cut mortises in the posts? If so, I don't think you will have any problems. Our local granite shop makes a fence just like that out of Elberton granite.
I would most concerned about kids climbing on it and possibly breaking the horizontal piece.

okay thanks. My concern was that if it all expanded with the 400 pound posts sandwitching the rails they would simply have no where to go and fracture.

This fence will be 70 ft long, have to get it right the first time!:eek:
