As explained in my linked answer, I cut a half-lap joint into the 4x4 post. I set the post on top of the step with the lap hanging over, then drilled holes and drove sleeve anchors through the wood and into the concrete.

I would use a Diamond Grinding wheel and grind the concrete around the pipe till it is level. Probably take less than an hour at each corner. Once concrete is level, use metal grinding wheel to cut the pipe level.
