This was a basic square tube railing that I had built. The interior of the home was finished and the home owner wanted a modern look that was sturdy enough to not hide the "floating tread" stair case, sturdy and up to code, and also mimicked the steel industry of the city. Or at least, what it was. This is the design that he came up with.
Unfortunately, the place was being painted and a month out from move in. The bamboo flooring was already installed. And the best part was that the stair cases were extremely long and extremely narrow, typical of these homes in the city. That being said, EVERYTHING for ALL THREE FLOORS had to be made on site, in place with no sparks AND/or minimal smoke. (Electronic smoke detectors already installed and live) and if you're wondering, this was a side job.
I had to use a port-a-band to cut every single piece.
I used a Maxstar 150STL AND TIG welded every single joint. All 4 edges on every square joint.... 98% of them anyways.
I added some faux bolt heads on some of the strip metals to give the appearance of a riveted bridge look.
The final painting was done on the strip metals, but the handrails and railings were cleaned and clear coated to show off the welds and give the over all job a very modern, industrial look.
