    Default Where to find half-rounds?

    I'm looking for a couple of half-rounds, basically big poles that have been cut length-wise in half, to use as ground lines for my ditch. I've checked a couple of garden centers and Home Depot. Any ideas?

    Find someone with a table saw and have them split a large
    round rail. Or maybe get a 6x6 and cut it diagonally so
    you will have two triangular pieces and take the top off
    the triangle with a belt sander or a table saw or could be
    done (tediously) with a rasp.

    Contact your local utility company about getting retired power poles. They're usually free, though you may have to go get them. Then find somebody with a chain saw to cut them. Or just bury half to reinforce the edges of the ditch.

    We find them at Southern States, Tractor Supply, or a Farmer's Co-op.

    Home Depot & Loews have them but they're not in the lumber department they're in the garden section outside by the fertilizer & stuff
