    Hi Bert,

    We laid out the uprights for the railing on the slab before the tile went in.
    If I remember correctly, the uprights on the railing were 3/8 x 2 flat bar.
    We probably had the holes cored to 3" diameter so we can just pour the railing in place. This is a clean way to do it, you just have to make sure nobody monkeys with it while it's setting, as you're provisions for levelling are literally "set in stone." The escutcheons- excuse me, ornamental cover plates- were also from 3/8" material, slotted to fit over the 3/8" x 2 balusters. So... no bolts.

    When you do thing this way, there's always that nagging feeling of "I sure hope I welded this thing together correctly to fit the cored hole pattern..."
    Usually it works out.... usually.

    Measure twice. Don't lose your measurements. I'm horrible and often find key measurements on the side of a cardboard box, napkin, back of my hand. Yikes.

    Thanks for the interest.

    Chris, ok...before the railing is set in "stone", do you put the escutcheons in, then set the railing in the hole? then you tile over, then the escutcheons are what...epoxied down onto the tile?
    Sorry for being a dummy about this. Never seen it done before..also, the scrollwork? custom made? or bought?
    thanks Chris!!!!!!!!!!
