I don't know what kind of fasteners you used to attach your pickets to the rails, but they won't be pretty after you pry them apart.

Staining after you assemble is probably best, and spraying on a board on board will be a lot easier - you'll just have to watch closely for excess stain that might collect in the corners and make...

That's a pretty good number of holes. What kind of posts are you using, how deep are you digging and what kind of soil? Any roots or rocks?
