how can i make a hand rail that will be good and wont fail. preferbelly metal
for an urban during the winter and then turf for summer
depends where you are going to put it on a hill or on flat
now you'll have you main material for sliding(flat tube) then you will weld same material(steel and can be a square tube smaller) to the bottom of the main tube as the legs you can choose how high your rail will bea nd how it will slowly get smaller(ie. start a 2 feet high and have the end 1.5 feet high so its angles down on flat ground)
if its on flat then you are going to make the legs progressively shorter so the rail is angled down
if its on a hill then you make them all the same length so it will be a down no matter what and can also work as a flat rail on flat ground
then you can use the same square tube used for vertical posts for the legs or you can buy angle iron(maybe 1.5 inch by 1.5 inch)(depends on how big your rail is) and weld that to the bottom of the vertical posts and maybe make each one 3-4 feet long for stability
that should work and tell me if you don't understand anything and ill try to clear it up for you
good luck man and i want to see pictures when you finish to see how it turned out
