My bad its not 3/4 in rod its 5/8 still weighs like 25lbs

Im hoping to snag some sheet metal at the junk yard like I did wit those rods and cover it up. Ideally I want to make it from pipe once I get a good design ( and a pipe bender lol. I cut one inch lives and welded them together because I couldn't accurately bend this stuff
