Using the 1 1/2″ wood screws attach one of the pre-drilled boards to a cedar post. Make sure the top of the board is squared with the top of the post. Do this again, attaching the opposite end of the board to another cedar post. Attach another pre-drilled board just below the first one. You should have a “n” shape now. Do these steps one more time.
Place one of the pre-drilled boards on the cedar post adjacent to the other attached boards. Remember to keep the top of the board flush with the top of the post.
