    I am replacing some pressure treated boards of my fence that keep the top lattice in place.

    Home Depot sells the wood but not with the channel/groove.
    Tart lumber sells the wood and will make the cut for a premium price.

    Any suggestion for a different local vendor that I can reasonably purchase the cut wood from?
    or
    Does anyone have the tools and ability to make a dado/channel cut in seven 8ft pieces of 2x4 pressure treated lumber?

    Lattice on your fence?

    Example (not my fence). Standard for townhouses in at least a section of Southern Walk.

    Use a circular saw.. 2 or more cuts depending on the width you need. A chisel or simple blade can be used to pop out the excess left between the cuts.
