I finally made tap handles for my dad. They are a very late xmas present...
This is pre-clear coat, the middle dark one is not as dark now.

What do you guys think?

Those are called Wrought Iron Baskets. You should be able to find them at a metal supply store near you or on the internet. Then there are welded parts on top and bottom.

I have bought some of those from a place called Industrial Metal supply in Phoenix, AZ. I've tried finding them on the web site without success. I went there in person and bought them. I've also seen them at some metal recycle facilities.

Also try king metals online. They have tons of wrought iron bits and pieces. You can make some slick stuff that way

Yep, bought the parts, welded, then grind and grind and grind and polish, then grind more, polish more, and some clear coat to bring out the shine. I really like how they turned out.
