You can feeble and smith round rails, but it is harder.

I suggest building square if you are welding it, as it is easier to weld square tubing VS round metal (unless you know how to cut round pipe/weld it to make a tight fit). Are you welding them or are you making them out of lumber with angle iron on top? Make sure it is AT LEAST 8 feet long.

I recommend square for ease. Cutting the round slots out for a pipe is pretty simple if you know how, but if not it can be pretty damn hard. I actually built an adjustable height round bar rail that is 8 feet long (goes from 28" to 38") last year. It's fun, but was a pain to initally get the gap close enough to weld decently.
