About This Project

Our 1x6 cedar fence posts were like $2.39 each, but the 1x4's were $1.17 each, so $9.36 for the cedar plus about $2.50 for the trim.  But on the 2nd bed, we opted to use 4x4 @ 8' cedar that I got for half off (@$8) because there were 3 "beat up" pieces left.  So our total was @ $13 each.

Those look great--and what a good price! I am so jealous about all of you with cheap cedar in the stores. A 1x6x8 here costs 14.50! And there are no cedar fence pickets to be found--I search CL daily. People just don't build much with cedar around here. Ours are still better than ordering them online though.
