Looking to make a metal frame/wood topped coffee table, does anyone know where I can find metal framing materials? Answered

I'm a bit of a newbie, looking to make a table kind of like this:

The wood top isn't a problem, but I'm having a world of trouble locating materials for the frame part, particularly in customizable specs so I can keep the table narrow.

If any seasoned builders know a good source, or have any other useful tips about my hopeful project, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks :)

Exactly what I was looking for!

Unfortunately my roommate got impatient and went ahead and ordered the table in the picture instead of waiting for me to build it -__- but thank you, good to have this resource in my books :)
