Split Rail Fence

For Split Rail, for you, your neighbors and families

Mill Outlet Lumber

When Railsplitter Abraham Lincoln set out to build or mend some fence he had to start by beating his way through a pile of Chestnut logs or two. Nowadays we have it easy some say, kids not willing to work hard for anything, everything available at the filck of a switch.

I am happy to say that we don’t have to split rail today, having done it myself a time or two, it is so much easier and convenient to make a trip to Mill Outlet for your Split Rail Supplies. Not only are your rails and posts split and ready to go, but they are mortised and tenoned so that they fit right together without giant spikes or precipitous balancing acts.

At Mill Outlet, we stock 1000’s of feet of rail and 100’s of posts in two sizes and varieties. Pony Rail, is smaller and more affordable,, But it also has more…

Fall Is in the air

Fall is in the air again, and that means football, leaves and rain. It also means it is the best time to get outdoor chores done since it is cool enough to labor all day and the insects of summer are mostly gone along with the ever present threat of sunburn. It is time to cut firewood for next year and to split rail for fixing fences. No wait, that is way too much work.

Cedar split rail is what we do at Mill Outlet. 2 Rails high, 3 Rails high, standard weight and pony weight, always thousands of feet on hand, enough for any project.

For 2 rails and 1 post, enough to go 10′


We stock through mortised line posts, blind mortised end posts and 90 degree mortised corner posts, all are the same price

We stock 8′ rail if you need it for $ .50 more per foot, and if you need to purchase individual components we can sell that way as well.

And on orders over 100′ we throw in 1 post for free to end the run.

Mill Outlet is the source for cedar split rail for western Washington and beyond
