  5. Caution: This step involves hitting nails with a hammer in close proximity to your fingers. Work gloves are recommended if you are unfamiliar with using a hammer. Hold a wood nail approximately 1 inch from the side of the picket. You may place the first nail 1 inch away from either the left or right side of the picket. Each section uses 2 nails so it does not matter which side you choose to work on first.

Sonuç

This guide only demonstrates how to replace a picket on a wooden fence. For questions regarding staining your fence and finding the right stain, I recommend talking with a worker at a hardware store near you.
