Replacing Old Fence Rails?


Recommended Posts

I am replacing some of my rotted fence rails. They are 11 foot rails and the few that I did went in pretty easy (I had to do a little cutting at the ends and some shaping on a few). My issue is that some sections of my fans are not 11 feet, they are smaller.


I am looking for advice on how to cut down the 11 foot rails to fit the smaller sections and look decent. I started to make one with my sawzall but it did not look great and used almost an entire M18 5.0 battery. I was thinking maybe using a tablesaw but I’m really not sure.

OK, I think I see now.  One end is already cut, you just need to cut it down to size and then shape the end to fit into the post.  
I am not sure how thick it is but can you use a circular saw and cut the wedge?  

I tried the sawzall and it did not work well, that’s a great idea. I will try to use my Fuel M18 circular saw tomorrow.
