    I have done projects like this with reclaimed wood and ACME threaded rod. It is a cool threaded rod with a course thread, used most commonly for industrial applications, machining, like vices etc. Google ACME threaded rod. Like this. https://www.nutty.com/Acme-Threaded-Rod_c_491.html    It can be purchased from Mcmaster carr as well as a lot of other suppliers. They make right and left handed threads, you need to make sure you get the correct ,matching nuts.

    A similar color to try is Luau Green 6712 by Sherwin Williams.

    Local architectural salvage companies (our local also salvages the old timber joists from city buildings). You might also check with smaller lumber mills in your area.

Did you do anything to the pipes? Or did you just paint them?

    These are black iron nipple fittings(maybe 8") into union fittings(the bolts). All this can be bought at a place like Lowes.

    Not quite as easy as going to Lowe's - 1 1/2" solid threaded rod and nuts purchased from industrial supply, I believe McMaster Carr. Just de-greasing the thick heavy grease from these rods is a major chore to get started. Custom base plate feet welded by our shop. The character of the wire brushed reclaimed fir and scale of threaded rod make this what it is. A lot more time and labor in this than you might think.

What exactly does wire wheeling the wood mean?
