junk pole fence - an alternative to burning "fuel wood"
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:53:35 AM »
A fence made of waste wood (this wood is typically burned in an effort to reduce wildfires).  It's a bit like making fence out bamboo, but in an area where these conifer poles are considered a nuisance.  You can see the rock jacks (this particular property is one giant rock) - but ignore those for this video (we hope to have a rock jack video later).  Pretend these are normal fence posts.   This particular fence is being made 8 feet tall to keep deer out and to keep layers (egg laying breeds of chickens) in.   This is a BB for part of the sand badge for woodland care in the PEP curriculum. You start by installing two horizontal poles along the top and bottom on the same side of your posts. Then you install four evenly spaced vertical spacers on the outside of the fence rails. Once you have your spacers up, you install one more horizontal pole across the middle on the outside of your spacers, and then you can just drop in loose poles to fill the rest of the fence up. Voila! Easy fence made reusing waste wood.

Very nice.  Dave Canterbury did a similar tutorial on a cord based design. He used saplings but same technique may be able to apply to waste wood.

Cool! 

It uses a fair bit of wire or cord, but it does have a lot of advantages.

cool.  I like.  Too bad that desert Utah is barren of junk wood, but I like the idea, for sure!

Our winters here are full of smoke as mountains of this sort of wood are burned in an attempt to prevent wildfires.
