How to Build a Wood Post: The DIY Guide

Finished Products

Posted December 07, 2018 06:07:58 This post is the first in a series about how to build a wooden post.

You’ll learn everything you need to know to build this wood post.

We’ve already built a wooden fence, and now we’re going to build our own wood post to keep the animals happy.

Step 1: Find a Post to Build Step 2: Measure and Mark the Posts Dimensions for the Post This post will need to be measured, and marked with a pencil.

You may want to use a ruler to help with this, too.

Make sure the wood posts are exactly the same width, so they line up with the posts.

Measure the length of each post and mark it with a ruler.

For this example, I’m going to use the same post as in the photo, but I’m marking the length with a little more precision here.

You can also mark each side of the post with a tape measure, but it’s much easier to use pencil marks.

Make a mark with the ruler for each side, and mark each line with a pen.

Step 3: Cut the Wood Step 4: Measure the Wood Posts and Cut the Pieces of Wood The first step is to make the wood post pieces, or post boards.

You will want to cut the posts to the exact width you need them to be.

For the photo above, I cut the post boards to the same length as the fence posts.

You could also cut the pieces to the width you want them to sit at, but you’ll need to use scissors to cut each piece in half.

For these posts, I used the 2×2 pieces.

This is a handy tool for this, because it will cut out the entire piece, and not have to drill the holes in each piece.

I also marked the posts with a marker so I could mark each of the posts when I cut them.

Step 5: Drill the Hole for the Posts to Hold the Posts In this step, I drilled a hole in each of each of these posts.

Make your mark with a 3/16″ bit.

You want the holes to be just a little bigger than the size of the pieces you’re cutting, so the hole is 3/8″ wide.

For each hole, I put a little bit of glue on the end of each piece so it would stick to the wood.

I then cut out a circle of wood that is exactly the size I need for the posts I’m drilling.

This piece was a little long, so I used a piece of 1/2″ pine.

I cut it out with a hacksaw and a 3″ long ruler, and cut out each of my posts in half, so that the two halves are on the same side.

Step 6: Drill a Hole for Each of the Posts You Need to Drill the holes into the wood in a pattern.

I drilled the hole in the middle of each two posts, and drilled two more holes.

These holes were drilled into the center of each corner, so there were two pieces of wood inside each corner.

I marked each corner with a small dot of glue to help mark the location of the hole.

For a bit of extra safety, I also drilled a second hole into the corners of the two posts.

Step 7: Mark the Wood with a Pen I’ve made my marks with a black marker.

If you don’t want to drill a hole into each corner of the wood, you can use a pencil and a marker to mark the marks.

I just marked the corners with a tiny dot of tape.

This will make it easier to see where I’m placing the mark on the wood once I’m done.

I put my pencil mark in the center, and I marked the second post with an X. Step 8: Mark a Hole on the Wood With the pencil mark on each corner mark, I traced around the corner with my ruler.

I placed the mark about a quarter of an inch from the corner.

Step 9: Mark with a Dremel and Drill the Corner The next step is drilling the corners.

I made a mark on my countertop with a 1/4″ drill bit, and a drill bit and a ruler about the size and thickness of a quarter.

I didn’t have a DREMEL, so this is a bit trickier.

I used two pieces from my saw, and measured the width of the blade I used to cut out my mark.

Then I used that width and height to drill into the corner of each cross piece with the 1/8″-32″ drill bits.

This gave me a bit more accuracy than using a DREML, but the drill bits were a little heavy.

I only used one DRELL, and it worked perfectly.

Step 10: Drill and Drill and Repeat This step will take you about 5-10 minutes, depending on how small your wood post is.

Once the holes are drilled, you’ll have to wait until the wood is dry before you start cutting. Step
