            Thanks. I planned on building them in the shop, but ended up just doing on site.

                Looks fantastic, which tricks/tools did you use to keep everything so square and straight?

                  I cored all the holes.

                  Cut the uprights 4 inches longer than the over all height of the rail when finished.

                  Set the uprights with Rockite cement.

                  The side walk slops towards the drain so I did not have level ground. So I set my height at each end and ran a string-line to set the height on the rest of the posts.

                  Then used a Pro-Tools tubing notcher to notch all the uprights.

                  I notched all the mid-rails in the shop with the notcher on the drill press.

                  Tacked in my mid-rails then top-rails, then finished welding.

                  Then the sucky part, PAINTING! I hate painting.

                    I can't add anything to that!! I bid a small railing job on a residence just before Christmas. It needed to match the house trim. The home owner said he still had some paint and would paint it. YES!!
