You could cut and thread your pipe to size and then get it chrome plated.
I had some items chrome plated when I was building a vibration training device a few years back and was surprised how inexpensive it was. It might be worth a phone call. One side benefit might be that you could leave the threads partially unchromed and the threading will be easier and less chance of galling.

"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
