& Rail Fencing
mortice and tennon post and rail fences are manufactured mainly
2-rail but also 3-rail as per NSWs early settlements.
Posts are split from durable (class 1) timbers to resist insect
and bacterial attack. Can be round or square, normally 300 mm
longer than intermediate posts and generally oversize
Normally 1.85 meters long and 250 - 300 mm wide, 75 - 100 mm
thick, have 1.2 meters above ground exposed.
As "in ground" durability doesn't apply, these timbers
are chosen from class 3 species and better - they are selected
mainly for splitability.
scarcity of long straight splitting logs, 2.4 meters length is
a standard, width approx 250 mm, thickness approx 50 - 70 mm.
