Erection help wanted (fence that is)

Going to be putting a fence up using concrete posts, but am stuck on how to do a corner its not 90 degrees its more like 20 degrees max see below, how do I work this corner, are there any brackets for this job or does it mean erecting two posts side by side one at an angle to the other? Id rather avoid that if possible?

The way i'd do it would be to attach an angled piece of wood to the end of the fence panel. If you're using concrete bottoms, then neatly concrete in any gaps.

Yes will be using concrete gravel boards, good idea with the angled wood, not too sure how to do it though as it will be hit and miss panels i'm getting.

edit: actually that should make it easier as there are only two points at each end where its sliding into the posts (I think) so just two "chocks" of wood

yeah an extra piece of wood or possibly plane the ends of the panels, and you ought to be able to slide each into the same post at 10 degrees off axis

Looking at the fence panel construction there are three horizontal bars, the best plan looks to be to saw these at an appropriate angle at one end.

Bear in mind though, that you would need the angle longer, not shorter, for it to fit in the post. If you was going to cut the fence panel, then you would have to move the post a touch closer.

Are you using the concrete base boards (that I can't remember the name of) as I think there is usually enough play in the slots to get a 20 degree angle without any extra work involved. I'd just make sure the posts are a little closer together to get a good fit. If using the base boards this may make life a little harder.

Gravel boards you mean? Probably, either that or some railway sleepers, trouble is this some of the fence will form the back of the chicken run, so I have to set something that go's below soil level to stop foxes digging under!
