I needed some odd custom sizes so I made my own fences.
Note these were for one step down rooms so I felt I could go lower on height and went for ~22'.
Wooden closet clothes rod
3' dowels of ~0.5"
1"X4" pine board
First, I sawed the board and clothes rod to length.
Second, I sawed the dowels in half.
Third, with a drill press I drilled sockets for the dowels in the clothes rod and board every 2 inches.
Fourth, I glued the dowels between the two and held the entire thing together with pipe clamps.
Fifth, I made the legs with left over boards (I went overkill and made the legs longer than the height).
I should have put some felt on the one that was on tile to keep it from scratching the floor (ended up giving the wife an excuse to get a new floor).
That was effective, looked decent, and the supplies were fairly inexpensive (~$30 for 2 8' sections)
