Fence slats-Standard wood fence using diagonal cross beams so all horizontal louvers are on the same side of the fence. An interesting alternative to this is a woven fence that uses vertical supports and fence slats weaved between them, like a wicker basket. Install these fins are not difficult, but ensures slats are the right length is more challenging.


Measure the distance between the two support posts at each end of the fence panel. Add 2 inches to this length. A fence panel for a woven fence should have two end support, a base board and two thin vertical posts that the fence slats is woven around. Cut a fence slat to this length and attach one end support with nails and a hammer.
Weave lamina behind the first vertical support and behind the other so it is behind the end support on the other end. Measure how much extra overlap there and shorten the other rods of this amount. Switch weaving process by the second lamina by guides to the bottom slat goes behind the first and especially the second. Continue until the entire panel is filled with woven slats.

Attach the slats to each end posts with nails or screws. Install the terminal supports and a cap rail to fill in the section of the fence. The end supports are attached adjacent end posts and fix the poles and fence slats. The cover rail is pushed in the end posts and going over the top of the fence section.
