I'm trying to find a source for some chrome tubing for my radio frame/legs. Something like John Vassos cabinet design.
Bauhaus or art deco style. Like this :

I can't find any metal shop locally who would do such thing.
Anybody can help? Thank you

Two ideas come to mind: plumbing stores and auto parts stores.

Yes, possibly. I'm looking for a shop that can bend and weld and make it all look professional.
There are so many products made of these tubes or pipes, but I can't find anybody close to me....

See if you can find a custom mortorcycle shop nearby. They should be able to bend tubing and have a relationship with a chrome plater. Don’t expect it to be inexpensive.

Custom bike builders as well.
