How do you nail a feather board fence?
Consequently, which way up does feather board go?
Skavenger. N.B. The Log Store is upside down so when it is the correct way up the fatter edge of the Feather is facing down.
Subsequently, question is, how do you calculate fencing? Equations used in the fence calculator Post length = fence height * 1.5. Total number of rails = number of rails per section * number of sections. Total number of pickets = fence length in inches / (picket width + picket spacing) (round the result up)
Hereof, how much do you overlap feather edge boards?
Feather-edge cladding is designed to be laid horizontally with a vertical overlap of approximately 40mm for boards up to 150mm, and 50mm for boards wider than 150mm. It is important to follow fixing advice, particularly when using green (wet) timber.
How much should close board fence overlap?
The overlap should be at least 25mm. Nails should be 50mm lost head nails or 50mm ovals. As you get towards the last post (between 6 to 10 boards distance) measure the distance and then adjust the spacing so that you finish at the outside edge of the post.
