I have seen people use a fine tooth bandsaw to cut brass. I stick to hack saws for my brass cutting. You will need a propane torch or preferable a oxy acetylene torch to braze the braze together, process with the same as soldering heat the metal to be bonded, let the material being bonded cause the filler material to melt. I like the flux coated brazing rod the best.

Back in the day, in high school shop class we used jewelers saws (like a coping saw but smaller) to cut shapes from brass stock to make keychains. Not the fastest, but fairly precise.

Based on cost, you might consider using steel and painting it brass or copper colored. If cost is no object have at it, please post the final product so we can see. That quantity of brass in my area would bankrupt me. I was looking for a small piece of Brass bar stock to make a hammer and a 12” piece of 2” was going to be several hundred dollars. I could buy a hammer already made for less.

thanks TechTeacher04 but i think no matter the cost of the brass or copper , at the end i will sell my piece expensive and it will be worth it the expense !

If painting the frame is not what you would like you might want to look into electroplating. I think it might cost less to make then frame out of steel and have it brass or copper plated.

Nice job on the top. I would also be concerned about the structural integrity of brass. Brass is really soft. I would be concerned about denting the frame of your end table by accidentally kicking it. Unless you’re planning on using solid brass instead of hollow brass tubing. In which case, your end table is going to weigh several hundred pounds. Electroplating is probably the way to go, as others have suggested.
