Step 3 – Attach Railing The railing is the lumber attached horizontally to the posts. The pickets or individual fence boards are applied directly to the rails using nails, screws or other hardware. It is common to use 2" x 4" lumber for railing. With the narrow side up, attach the posts with decking screws. Rails should be no more than 24 inches apart. Therefore, in the case of our 6-foot fence, we should see three railings between each post. You may use one continuous piece of lumber that expands the entire length of a fence section. However, you must make sure to attach the railing board to each post it rests upon. When you come to a situation where the railings meet on a post, ensure both railings meet in the middle of the post. Once all railings are installed, cut openings in railings for gates and remove excess wood extending past the posts at the corners.
