Basket Weave Fence style is made by arranging the slats/pickets on both sides of the stringers. Each side has the pickets arranged so as to cross over with every other slat/picket alternating sides.This space allows air to flow through.
Basket Weave fence the first layer of slat/pickets are fastened to the stringer spaced equal to the width of the slat/picket being used. The Fence Panel is then turned over where the spaces created on the first side are covered by placing slat/pickets over the open spaces and fastened into the stringer material. additional stringers can be slid between the sides, alternating, to create the basket weave look. 1/2" X 2" slat material is used as a trim strip once the fence panel has been attached to the post completing panel.
"stick built" basket weave fences are created by attaching the slat/picket on opposing sides of the fence. this is not a panel style fence.

material is either 1 5/8" X 1 5/8" or "Dressed" 2"x4".
