Equipment

  • Cordless Drill
  • 1 3/8" Hole Saw or Drill bit
  • 5/8" Hole Saw or Drill bit
  • Combo or Miter Saw

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1" x 1.5" x 3'
  • 2 1" x 42" PVC tubing For end tubing
  • 5 1/2" x 34" to 38" For inner tubing
  • 1 Box 1 1/4" wood screws
  • 1 Can Paint, Black Spray
  • 2 2' rebar or other stake Used to put 1" PVC sides of fence on top of to hold fence in place.

Instructions
 

  • Cut 1 x 3" board in half at 36" long.
  • Cut 2 pieces of 1" PVC 42" long.
  • Cut 5 pieces of 1/2" anywhere between 34" and 38"
  • Take 1.5" boards 36" long and clamp together (one on top of the other).
  • At 2" from both ends, drill 1 3/8 or similar size hole through both clamped boards. This will allow the 1" tubing to be threaded through.
  • At every 6" interval, from the end, drill a 5/8" or similar size hole through both clamped boards. This will allow the 1/2" tubing to be threaded through.
  • Drill a 1/4" countersink on the side of each hole drilled into the boards to allow less crush when drilling in the screws to secure the PVC tubing.
  • Screw both 1" tubing pieces at both ends of the two boards.
  • Thread through the 1/2" tubing in the remaining 5 holes.
  • Screw all 5 x 1/2" tubing to the board but alternate the height so they are not even. Do this on both ends.
  • Spray paint black the entire faux wrought iron fence.
  • Hammer in rebar where you want to locate the fence. Place the 1" PVC over the hammered in rebar.
