Aussie Bush Craft.fence.


Recommended Posts

Spotted on the way to Leslie dam.

Think it is an old sheep pen judging by the high split rails. Split rails,split palings

Just imagine the work that went into it felling the trees,cutting to length,splitting the palings,splitting the rails and then mortising them all done by cross cut saw,maul and wedges.and adze and fencing pliers all by hand.

I couldn't get any closed for more photos as the bull in paddock definitely was not friendly

For the young blokes this type of fence used to be common as were slab huts and are quite rare nowdays.
