Making the side supports for the adjustable wooden fence

In this post I am going to make the union of the vertical post to the base to obtain the inverted T of the wooden supports of the fence. And I'm going to join the 60 degree side gussets, and that I already cut previously.

I start by attaching the vertical post to the horizontal base. For this I have to cut a 2,5cm deep notch where the post will fit. I do this whole process at once for the two inverted T's of the wooden fence. With the little homemade squaring car It is very easy to adjust the dimensions of the box so that the pole fits perfectly. To join the pieces I use glue for exteriors, applying a good amount in the hope that it will also seal the joint and prevent moisture from entering the wooden joint.

Also from the bottom I make a couple of blind holes with a 10 mm cup bit, deep enough so that the smooth part of the screws that I am going to use reaches the union. In this way, when tightening the screws they will pull the post towards the base and I avoid having to use some complicated clamping system with sergeants while drying the tail.

Attach and join the reinforcement of the inverted T-joint

With the help of a slightly large sergeant and a wooden wedge cut at 60º I hold the reinforcements firmly against the post and the base while I drill them. But it is necessary to hold the T firmly at three points to prevent the wooden supports from deforming due to the pressure exerted by the sergeant who tightens the reinforcements.

With all the pieces fastened in their correct position I can drill the blind holes and the guide holes for the screws. And since the screws are quite long I have to remember to drill the guide holes both in the reinforcements as well as in the post and in the base.

In addition I must maintain the corresponding inclination when continuing the hole of a piece of wood in the other in which the screw will enter. Once I have all the holes for a support drilled, I can apply a good amount of exterior glue. I insert the screws and close the holes with pieces of wooden dowels, as I did with the connection of the post to the base of these wooden supports. And I can now place the other reinforcement and do the same job on the other wooden T of the fence.

Glue, screw in and hide the screws. enredandonogaraxe.club

Clean the excess glue with a little sawdust and let it dry overnight.

Cut the dowels used to hide the screws

And now all I have to do is cut the protruding pieces of wood dowels with the saw and leave them pretty.

Hide screws with wooden dowels

With the chisel I leave the surface of the spike flush with the wood. And after a little sandpaper they are perfect. Unless you're a little picky about the grain directions. You also don't need to spin as fine with these wooden supports.
