I made coping from 1-1/2 inch EMT (Electrical Metallic Tubing). It's used as conduit for running electrical wiring (thus being found in the electrical section of Home Depot). I paid US$13.90 for 10 ft.

I got the connectors and rails at Home Depot. However, I had to weld the supports in, because a connector piece would interfere with grinding, which isn't easy.

Is there a reason you need to find it on-line? It's probably not a product you can order a small quantity of and have delivered. Many items (specially building materials) available at Home Depot stores are not available at HD.com. Your best bet is to go to a local building supply or metal supply store and pick it up.

You might try an internet search for eletrical metallic tubing or conduit suppliers and see if someone will ship it to you, if that's what you need.

Good luck!

im using PVC pipes. their not as easy to grind on (unless you wax it) but they are easier to drill holes in and screw into the wood
