    Question Setting posts to a non 90 degree angle

    Hi,

    I am building a 1 sleeper high retaining wall using the steel channel posts available at Bunnings.

    Just wondering what the best course of action would be for setting my posts and sleepers where they do not form a 90 degree angle?

    I can see i have two options either use the H channel and cut/wedge a sleeper to match the angle or use two C channels and butt them up against each other like the attached pic.

    Thanks in advance.

    For only one sleeper high I would go for you first option and also cut the end where it goes into the C channel so it goes in as deep as possible
    Not a lot of pressure with one high sleeper

    I'd go option 1 but make the H split the angle...
    And.....your point is.....what exactly?
