Split Rail Fence Components

There are many different types of split rail fences, but they all have two main components: posts and rails

The posts are what hold the fence up to provide support for the other elements. These posts are usually made of wood or metal and are set into the ground at regular intervals. The split logs are held up against the posts and run along the length of the fence.

Fence rail

A split rail fence has rails that are constructed out of lumber pieces or logs that have been split in half lengthwise. These pieces are then stacked on top of each other to create a fence. The most common type of rail is the round rail, but there are also square, rectangular, and even diamond-shaped rails.
