Storm Damage Questions

The high winds and heavy rain from the Pacific storm over the weekend knocked down two Redwood lattice top fence panels in our backyard.

A new 6×8 section is about $US 90. The only damaged pieces were the header and sides. They have a groove routed in them. Nobody sells them. Can’t I just buy a router and some Redwood 2x4s and make them myself?

Also, the one 4×4 support post that broke at the base was just buried in the dirt. (01/08/2008: Actually, the post was in a concrete, I hadn’t dug deep enough) I have this concrete support that holds up our house. Can I just bury that and use that to support the post?
