Good Neighbor Fence: Part 3 – Boarding it Up

Good Neighbor Fence:  Part 3 - Boarding it Up

In this video, I have finished the top rails and demonstrate how to place the boards on the frame. I use a nail gun with galvanized nails, but you can also use screws. Screws will take longer, but will be more secure.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. I mistakenly used a brad nailer when I did my fence obviously I'm having pickets back out now… what type of nail gun do I need for the pickets? A lot of what I read online says 2 inch framing nailer but there's no way at 2 in nail is not going to stick out the other side sense the pickets are less than half an inch and a two-by-four is technically only an inch and a half wide. Thoughts?

  2. Great build!!! — However, read this please: The difference between level and plumb lies in orientation. When something is "level," it's straight from side to side, like a shelf that's been properly installed. When something is "plumb," it's straight up and down, like the walls of a building or a fence post or picket. — Ahhhhhhhh it's been said.

  3. I used screws on mine that sucker will never fall apart.Wear a pouch,load er up with screws and keep the extra battery on the charger.I also built myself a jig for top and bottom so its spaced on both at same time.

  4. Hello Brent; I just became your follower in Amazon, I’m looking forward to get started in the hydroponics AS A BUSINESS, I DINT KNOW A THING ABOUT IT, just that it is the future, I will be contacting you for advise and items needed obviously I will pay for any on hands training, advise or support that you may be willing to provide I’m based in North Carolina but travel a lot… God bless🙏🏻!

    Pd. The boards are not shown on the link and the other link is YouTube, would you share where to get them cheaper than H. Depot? If there is a place to get them cheaper.. Tks

  5. Nice fence, I'm going to do the same as you only metal posts covered with wood,. Question: with your first picket installed flush with post, could you use your spacer for top and bottom alignment instead of a level?

  6. Boy that is one huge fencing project. I pray you do well with it. It already looks like it's going to be a great fence. I love how it's taller than what you usually see.

  7. Brent: By the time you are finished your right forearm will be bigger than your left. Was it sore after the first day? A nail gun is the only way to go doing that job. It is going to look great when you are finished.
