Default Where, oh where...please

I just stumbled across this forum and this thread. I'm trying to do some of the same stuff mentioned in the thread. Where did you find this type of moulding? I need to build a "retro" table to fit my space. I haven't had any luck finding one with the right dimensions.

Is Bungalowbabe still out there? I would really like to know where you purchased the aluminum banding.

Just found these messages! In case anyone is looking for this chrome banding, I found mine at Home Depot. I bought lengths of 1 1/2 inch and lengths of 1", each with a 1/4" lip. The wide flat band was glued to the top edge and the ribbed, narrower one was glued from the bottom. Used contact cement and only used screws on the curves. The mitres were tricky, but turned out well.
