Simple! My 3 year old could build this!

ridiculous crap.  Ya....using stainless screws....and all that detail just to make a fence section...lol.  Easier to just get cedar posts.  Wrapping in peel and stick is just garbage, as moisture will penetrate, and rot that post even faster, as it will have no ability to dry out.  This video is essentially garbage.  Nice look, but complete garbage technique.  Conjured to look high tech...lol...but stupid technique for any carpenter to use.

No gravel? No caulking? Those posts wont last theyll deteriorate at the soil level.

Joe Hoe so why don't you write directly to TOH and let us know their justification. I think the justification would be the fact that we live in a throw away culture where nothing is valued for longevity: if it lasts 3 months you're good. Warranty is expired.

Cedar will rot in the ground.  It is not resistant to rot when constantly wet.  Cedar is only resistant to rot when it's not sunk into soil.  I would have simply gone with cedar posts, as the wrap is a nightmare waiting to happen.  Pressure treated posts will not last any longer than cedar posts....especially if one uses 6 x 6 cedar.  Overall, a badly done video.  Wrapping in peel and stick is just plain dumb, as water will penetrate and will never be able to dry....leading to a definite rot situation.

Please stop playing that music, it's really distracting while trying to hear 30 instructions.

Leave the post undisturbed. Dim the lights, turn off the music and read a book while your post relaxes.

anyone know the name of the tool being used with the saw at 1:50 to rip the board?

That would be an attachable fence on a circular saw

OMG, the guy is working under an awning! How gay is that? Hey, just making a joke. I like the idea, but never had the luxury. In my mind's eye I can hear the boss' reaction to an employee's suggestion that one be erected.

+garth arnold Thanks Garth. I thought I had done that but I guess I hadn't. Old age, I suppose! Thanks bro.

Beautiful fence, but a half-assed way to go about building it.

There's a lot of crap in this video, that an experienced carpenter would just shake their head at.  Ideas they came up with, to look better than the next guy, but they come out looking a hell of a lot worse, when an experienced carpenter looks at this video.  Wrapping a post...rather than just using a cedar post.  Using peel and stick on wood in the ground...lol.  The concrete mixing job..  The ridiculous use of stainless steel screws....and the overall plan for fastening each section...
St Pariah (5 months ago)
Agreed. Could have been presented better for less educated DIY’ers, or built better for people that actually know how to premix their concrete.

0:23 Good old Pythagoras. You can always count on him for a square deal.
