Cut Wood

Use a circular saw to cut the wood planks to size. To achieve the tapered Christmas tree silhouette look, trim each plank between 6 inches and 1 foot shorter in length than the one below it.

Lay Out Cut Planks

Once planks have all been cut with the saw, lay them flat on the ground to ensure that the proper silhouette is starting to take shape.

Attach Planks

Starting at the very bottom, temporarily tack up each plank to the 4x4 post with a drill and wood screws.
