I would like to add two 300mm pieces of treated fence post (75 x 75 thick) to already installed fence posts so that I can install a home made trellis between these posts.
As the cost of drilling a hole through the middle of the two pieces of post is too expensive (very long drill bit and screws longer than 300mm), I was wondering what anyone would recommend.
I was thinking of first glueing the short bits of post on top of the existing posts using a 'hard as nails' type glue, then using long screws drilled at an angle down through the glued on short post through to the already installed posts. I was going to screw the bottom of the trellis to the existing fence (thick top section) so I hope the strength is ok.
I don't want to use a metal plate to secure the posts for aesthetic reasons.
