  1. If you have a table saw or radial arm saw those could also be used to notch the post. Also if you didn't want to see the old chain link could you have remove the chain link and the add then drilled and screwed in the pipe structure and put the wood posts over the metal posts.

  2. Hi thank you this is what I need. I have some questions. My 3ft chain link fence is on side of my house at back patio with a gate that leads to my driveway and garage. it's in cement. Will this still work for me?

  3. Very impressive! Yes I learned a new way. Was thinking, though, about building a frame around the metal posts, using maybe I x 4. Four pieces wrapped around Inna square, boxed in. Does that make sense? Would want to out something in the upper 2 feet so it's not hollow. Maybe spray foam. Criticisms welcomed! Thank you πŸ™‚

  4. This is bad ass and made me feel very comfortable with doing this on my existing chain link so I don't have to see my neighbors when i'm outside lol. Thanks homie!

  5. Are there any concerns for whether the posts can handle the additional weight from the wood being added to the fence? =)

  6. Freaking awesome! Thanks sooooo much! Built this fence for my mother in law saved sooo much time and money!!

  7. Amazing! This is a game changer. Half of my back yard has a 6 ft chain link and the other half is 4 foot. Drives me nuts and have hid it over the years with shrubs and trees but the fences and posts are sound and I hate the idea (and cost) of taking them out. I've always wanted to do this but wasn't sure how to connect the posts until I saw your clever way. Thanks!

  9. Yikes this be falling over on first big wind storm or in couple years as it's only "anchored " by zip ties!. Better to disconnect the chain link, get a larger diameter metal post to slip over smaller, drill holes and bolt the larger post over smaller one. Then attach the wood fencing with adapters, as the chain link is gone.

  10. I just bought 5 4x4s and 6 2x4s to see if I am capable of doing this sleeving of the chain link so I can try to have a privacy fence.. so wish me luck… I could barely carry the 4x4s to the back yard so this is going to be hilarious…

  11. Hi, can you help , I have a 5 panel galvanized farm gate that I want to put cedar boards on it to make it a privacy gate .Please advise how to do this . Thank you Kayt


  13. Thx

    Did you do something similar with the gate ?
    I am just trying to block off the view so my dogs wont bark at neighbors…the easiest most inexpensive way possible. Thank you, Sir !

  14. Hi, I just attempted this on a small section at the side of my house and it seems like it will work great! One do you deal with the slight bow at the bottom due to the insert being placed back into the post? Thanks!!

  15. Could I do this with pre-made 8ft sections? and just not use the posts? I was thinking of using u brackets around the base and top of the metal fence and screwing into the pre-made sections. What are your thoughts?

  16. Although it looks good over time where you notched out to go over your fence it want last. Pressure treated lumber shrinks two to almost three times more than what it use to due to the way it is treated now. I would be curious to see how it held up say in about two years. Pretty sure at the top of your notch out you will see breaking off or cracking.

  17. Great idea!
    Do you have any tips or tricks on how I could build this with the finished side facing my neighbor and without me stepping on to their property in the process?
    Thank you!

  18. For heaven's sake, just use 2×4's on either side of the post instead of cutting down an expensive 4×4 post. Screw and glue a 2×4 piece in the center at the top. Shim out with exterior grade treated plywood sections if necessary. Or do it the easy way and attach with pipe clamps.
