    Tore down all the old fence and built a massive bonfire. Those are 16 ft boards.

    I would be lying if I said I didnt panic just a tad at how big the flames got. Thank God this post didnt turn up in the "worst things you have done" thread.

    All boards are up. I came back after this photo and lopped off the top of any post with a chainsaw.

    Only thing left is the schedule with the painter.

    Can we finally send this thread to solitary? Or at least lock it?

    No.

    The fence hasn't even been painted yet.
    Also, this is his pool/fence thread. There are still more projects around the pool that Brad plans to do, because he's rich, and that's what rich people do.

    Had the same gloves for probably about five or six years. They were pretty well but they're a little small for my hands though they are labeled as extra-large.

    I wonder if these would fit better. I tried a ton of gloves on at Home Depot and Lowes and they just weren't big enough.

    One of my friends who came down to help has freakishly huge hands. I bought him a pair of x-large for this project and they were actually a tad big on him. Both guys commented on how amazing those gloves were. You can even work your smart phone with them on.

    A buddy of mine in college (about 6' 5") said that 'big hands and big feet on a man' really means...
    I have to buy big gloves and big shoes. :(

    It took them 1 hour and the sprayer did all the work. All they had to do was walk along the fence and point the nozzle. I honestly dont think any kind of tip was merited.
