metal band for project?

I'm looking to make something similar to this:
http://www.uncommongoods.com/product/reclaimed-wood-cookbook-stand?utm_medi um=cpc&utm_source=google&gclid=CPiBmuSf_roCFepQOgodqikAEQ
The description says it's galvanized tin, and what looks like copper screws . I'd like to do something similar in either copper, tin, or brass. Any sug gestion on where to get this type of metal banding and screws? Doesn't have to be exact, I'm open to some modificatinos. Just not sure where to get th is type of material.
Thanks Chris

I believe Home Depot carries small pieces of copper roof flashing.

I haven't been able to find any. I looked all over for a few pieces of step flashing, or some such, a while back.

Try an electrical supply place looking for "copper ground straps". They can be ordered on line at:

McFeeleys sells both brass and (better) bronze screws. http://www.mcfeelys.com
You could probably find sheet copper locally. For heavier copper or brass, there are a number of on line places selling various shapes. Here is one... http://www.onlinemetals.com/
Tin? No idea but Google probably does. I didn't know they galvanized tin, don't think I ever saw such, can't think of a reason to do it but you could buy zinc bar and use your kitchen stove to melt it.

and hammering it flat. It will harden as you hammer it, so it would be good if you can get it really hot once and a while to anneal it.
It would also be easy to do with 1" wide steel strap from any steel supply yard. It would probably require a vise and torch to get good clean bends.

Galvanized sheet metal is easy to come by, and easy to work - and flattened copper pipe is an awfully complicated way to get a strip if sheet copper!!!! Copper flashing is available pretty well world wide, in just about any town of any size - and virtually any city.. Even tern plate metal from a large juice can could be pressed into use.

It looks kinda like the weldable steel that you can pick up at Menards. Lowes and Home Depot carry a similar selection.
You can also pick up brass pieces in approximately 12" lengths from a hardware store like Ace or a hobby shop.

Make it to fit, don't make it fit.

Copper strap is commonly used in equipment grounding applications but I can't readily locate any narrow stuff -- 2" appears to be common though. There is copper (well copper-plated steel) strap used in plumbing but it is perforated too closely to be much good for decorative purposes. Take a look at http://www.kf7p.com/KF7P/CopperStrap.html and see what you think.
My local borg (HD or Lowe's, can't remember which) has a metal center which has strips of metal, some up to 3-feet but I don't know if any of it would suit your purposes. I guess that one could beat up new steel strip and chemically treat to make it look old. I've done that with new hinges to adapt them to blanket chests and such.

Just remembered that K&S Engineering has metal strips in some of their retail display assortments, hobby shop fodder, but I don't know if any of them are in longer lengths than about 1-foot.

and brass of varying thicknesses and six inch widths called shim stock. I DAGS on shim stock and came up with a bunch of entries (no shit Sherlock) including Amazon (again see previous parenthetical statement). As to the galvanized tin, my guess is that it's galvanized sheet steel. Screws are carried by all sorts of places in copper, brass (bright and burnished), including McFeely's.
There is (was?) a business in Monrovia, CA, that sells large sheets (e.g. 4' x 8') of all kinds of stuff plus tubes (round and square), angles, etc that sells to the DIYer as well as commercial establishments. A really neat place to browse if you are trying to imagine a project. You might see if there isn't such a place near to you. Anyway, good luck and have fun.

p.s. FWIW I think you posted in a good place to get answers.

I would start a search with: A roofing specialist/company should have sheets of copper flashing readily available, to them. They might even have facilities to cut-to-size whatev er width & length you need, if tin snips & a file aren't sufficient for DIY ing. I've often fabricated "whatever" improvised item, from leftover coppe r flashing sheets from my home's roofing. I've even found improvised uses for the leftover copper nails, from the flashing and roof tile installatio n. A good roofing company should have access to these sorts of supplies.
A "complete service" roofing company may know where other types of sheet me tal goods are available, also, for not-so-typical of applications/needs.

any commercial roofer can get you sheet copper if you want to go that direction. Brass screws are easy to find, and copper should be available from any boat-builder supply
