Needed some posts for a fence I'm building around my garden. Had some treated
2x8s that I scrounged a couple of years ago. Ripped them to 3". Treated the below ground
w/some left over asphalt sealer, above ground w/Thompsons. Screwed them together.
Cut a little detail on the top to match the fence pickets.
Not too bad for a few crappy 2x8s.
