I am considering making some railings to go on top of a low section of wall
beside the house.
Have any of you done this?
Any advise or words of warning?
I have found this website which sell all the finials etc at reasonable cost.
I also know where I can buy pre drilled bar for the horizontal rails.
My plan is to lay the pre drilled bar on the wall and use it as a template
for drilling the flags that form the capping. Then simply build the railings
in situ, having welded finials onto the upright first of all in the
workshop. The height need only be about 500mm so I am unsure whether to have
just one horizontal or two. The ends can be secured to existing higher wall
one end and a stone pillar the other. I need to take care though as the
walls and pillar are quite old.
Any advise appreciated.
