Turning metal conduit into brushed steel pipe

I was recently shocked by the price of the brushed steel pipe I wanted for a project. Especially when EMT is so cheaply and widely available.

It’s a slapdash rig involving a couple of wooden plugs on either end of the conduit, one with a furniture bolt for my drill, and a cable pulled taut between, running inside the pipe. You can of course buy big chucks and lathe kits which would work more smoothly — this was a spur of the moment test.
