I noticed in high winds that a rail had come loose from a post on my 6ft picket ("green treated" wooden) fence. As a temporary fix, I clamped the rail in place, and noticed that the post face was no longer in line with the rail, due to what would appear to be the post twisting.
I could attempt to force the face to match the rail, and screw and support it etc, but presumably the stress will make it forever brittle.
Should I attempt to wedge the gap?
I am wondering how it will return in drier months, and whether s wedge itself might be a weak point.
