Hi all, I will need a certain amount of the above for the start line area of my hillclimb, a la Shelsley Walsh. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make split chestnut paling fencing or if anyone makes the stuff to buy?
David, you've identified the big problem....roughing it up a bit! That's the essence of chestnut fencing, isn't it? It can be found in smaller scales, photo-etched, but in our scales that flatness simply won't do. I tried checking out brooms for suitable bristles. Right colour, wrong shape. Looks like I'll have to do them the hard way. Hand split wood, twisted with fine wire....dammit!
