First some background on the fence boards we carry. We sell and stock 95% or more of our cedar fencing from Reichert shake and fence in Toledo Washington. They are regarded as the finest dedicated cedar fence mill in the Northwest due to the quality and consistency of the boards they cut. Color is uniform as well as sizing and grading, a #1 board purchased today will be just like one from a year ago or a year from now, and that is the case for all of the other sizes and grades we carry in stock.

Most if not all of the boards we carry are full width which is a little different to some people. So our 6″ boards measure 6″s, 5″ measure 5″‘s and so on for 4″ and 3″ widths. All of the Riechert boards are consistently 5/8″ thick unlike other fencing that says it is 5/8″ but measure as little as 1/2″.

This being stated, we have a really good deal for fence builders right now. Our 1×5-6′ #2 and better is only $2.00 each because of an overabundance at the mill. These boards should be more like $2.30 each because of their excellent quality and consistency. In this size there are only 2 grades, #2 and better, which include #2, #1 and clear boards, or #3 which are the boards that were not good enough but are actually better than what you will find elsewhere as a “best ” fence board.

Perfect for me, Perfect for You?

This morning I was responding to an E mail inquiry for some clear utility cedar we have. The customer wanted specified lengths and in the end said, oh yeah and the boards need to be  perfect.

Image

Perfect ?

This was a reminder to me of why I enjoy selling lumber products so much. I reminded him that if these boards were quote, unquote perfect they would be more like $6-$7 per board foot instead of $2.50. What I considered but did not mention was that even the $6 per foot boards would not be perfect for some or even most people when all facts are considered. The boards might be straight, tight and vertical grained, perfectly dried and of consistent color, perfectly surfaced and edged, but who can afford $6.00 per board foot. That is $100.00 for 2-10 foot 1×10 boards, not perfect for me at least.

Perfect ?

The Lowly Post Cap

At Mill Outlet Lumber we manufacture simple, practical Fence Post Caps. It only makes sense because we do sell fencing, we do sell an array of cedar products and we try really hard to be practical.

As I drive around I see a lot of post caps and it makes me wonder if people realize that they serve a purpose. Most of them I see are decorative and I am certain, overpriced, made of copper, or with solar panels and built in lights. That is all neat, but in this day and age is it really necessary?

Image

Our Cedar post caps are inexpensive and they serve a purpose. They shed water off the tops of fence posts while protecting from the sun reducing opportunities to degrade the end grain causing the posts to check, crack, let in more of the elements and ultimately fail. All this and since we take extra care to select each cap as it is cut, they don’t look too bad either.

Because you are buying from the manufacturer and because we know how to keep our costs down low, we can ship these caps nationwide in quantities of 1 or 1000, or more, while saving you money.

For Inexpensive Cedar post Caps, Fencing and more, look to Mill Outlet Lumber for all Cedar needs.
