When Railsplitter Abraham Lincoln set out to build or mend some fence he had to start by beating his way through a pile of Chestnut logs or two. Nowadays we have it easy some say, kids not willing to work hard for anything, everything available at the filck of a switch.
I am happy to say that we don’t have to split rail today, having done it myself a time or two, it is so much easier and convenient to make a trip to Mill Outlet for your Split Rail Supplies. Not only are your rails and posts split and ready to go, but they are mortised and tenoned so that they fit right together without giant spikes or precipitous balancing acts.
At Mill Outlet, we stock 1000’s of feet of rail and 100’s of posts in two sizes and varieties. Pony Rail, is smaller and more affordable,, But it also has more of the character that most people are looking for in landscape projects and wetlands delineation projects. Pony Rail, comes in two rail and three rail configurations and we stock both 8′ and 10′ rails for scale and convenience. As far as posts go we keep line posts, end posts and 90 degree corner posts on hand all of the time.
Standard Split Rail is somewhat larger than Pony Rail and tends to be “blockier” with fewer knots and interesting grain. It gives a more uniform look when installed when that is what you are looking for. We stock Standard Split Rail in the same sizes and options as with Pony Rail.
What is most important for you to know is that you can count on Mill Outlet Lumber for Split Rail when you need it and that we will work like “Railsplitters” to earn your respect no matter what lumber product you need today.
