How to Cut Wooden Fence Panels to Length
By: Danny Lipford
When installing preassembled fence panels, you may need to trim the length of some of the panels to fit the allotted space. To cut a fence panel to length:
- Position the panel on the posts to see where it needs to be trimmed.
- Mark the location of the cuts on the rails (stringers), and trim as needed to fit the space using a circular saw.
- Cutting the protruding horizontal rails off of fence corners gives the fence a more finished look.
