Great recommendations for designing and planning your fence. Helps you understand the principles to make a good looking and sturdy fence whether you follow one of the designs in the book closely, or, create your own. Detailed instructions to make all fences in pictures on front and back cover. Contains a slew of picket fence designs in it. If you don't like any of the 20+ full sized picket patterns included with the book, there are several photos and drawings of dozens more. It is a very good design resource. It has helpful step-by-step instructions for making all the fences pictured on the front and back cover. Plus, it includes even more fences and patterns for some really pretty and uncommon picket styles. I didn't find any book with more picket patterns than this book. I used one of these patterns to make my fence and it is the talk of the town.
