Who ever said this was going to take some time, was right. Made 52 posts and need one more to finish job. Rails are 7.5 to 8 ft long and are old hand made locust split rails. I had to cut rails in sets of 3 to the same length and on some carve off ends to fit holes. Made bottom hole larger.

Fence is to keep ATV's and cars from driving through flower beds. The flower beds will look great in the spring.

No cows to keep out. Deer are welcome.

Boss is very happy. You should know if Momma isn't happy, no one is happy:)

George

That's fairly awesome! Good job.

When you first posted about making the posts I couldn't figure out how that "thing" was going to be a post and hold anything up. The pics are worth many words. Was this for a church or other religious organization? The crosses cast in are way cool.

W_B,
The cross idea came while sitting in church one Sunday morning. The Boss wanted a design and the cross was it. It was easy to make too.

Jimmyjack,

Forgot to mention, patient pending.

Will need to make posts lighter, they weigh 175 pounds.

I would spend about 4 hours to make 4 posts. Most of the time came form putting the forms together, cleaning forms, stripping forms, moving posts and setting up mixer. Only took about an hour to mix the concrete and put in the forms.
