My house has a loft with a wooden railing. The railing is only 30" high - apparently allowed because builder called it "unfinished storage space", or not "habitable" space, which means it could sidestep code.
I would like to modify the rail to be 36" high, and wonder how best to do it.
My dream would be to find hardware pieces of some kind that I could screw into the top edge of the 2x6 and then use those to support a dowel; so there would be a gap of 4" or so above the 2x6 and then the dowel. It'd look cool. Maybe a hanger bolt, except I don't think they come that large. Or a lag eye bolt, but again, I don't think they come that big.
Simply replacing the 2x6 vertical stiles would be simple, but a PITA as there are maybe 60 or so of them.
Or something completely wood-based. Not as cool as the dowel idea, but fairly straightforward. But I can't quite figure how to make it look reasonably nice.
