Spool holder made from copper pipe and aluminum tubing. Added a few pieces of simulated leather for visual offset. Not really steampunk, but whatever.

Used 1/2" ID copper pipe, cut to lengths as desired. soldered (4) tees, (4) 90's and (2) caps onto pipe. Cut (2) of the 90's in half to hold aluminum tubing that spool rides on. Cut 1/2" OD aluminum tubing to length to fit properly in cut 90's. Polished everything with Brasso. Added some free range naugahyde for trim. Originally had one made of PVC but it looks nasty by comparison, this is also sturdier.
