You've got me thinking. I've an off cut of 2" snooker bed slate which has a lovely charcoal colour when finished. In my head I can see a chrome rod of about 2 ft in height with a hardwood timber top to support a number of sticks. Indents in the slate to accept the ferrules. Bit of chrome nosing to set it off. The weight of the slate would be anchor enough and it could be against a wall or free standing. Just a thought. Might be an idea to have a word with Gruffalogriff on here as well. He has the most amazing ideas. Jok.

Well if I was knocking it up I'd cap the ends of box section with stainless and drill and tap it or drill some holes prior to welding them on and tack nuts on the inside, if you've any mates or acquaintances with a fab shop it's probably two hours work to cut box, mag drill stick holes in box and cap ends . Only an idea and some light oak wood look nice with the stainless

You could do it in mild/carbon and coat with quality plasicoat or get it powder coated.

Make a sketch and pop in your local fabrication shop, might be more than helpful, and there's nearly always off cuts to get rid of,
