Where can I find thin wall large diameter metal tube?

I need thin wall, less than 1/8", metal cylinder for project I'm working on. This will be used as display case. It can either be aluminum or stainless steel. The size I'm looking for is about 10" or 12" in diameter and about 12" long. Nice finish would be nice either polished or brushed. Can anyone help me.

Contact a local metal fabricator. The price for a SS tube of that diameter can be expensive. Because tubing comes in long lengths and you only want one foot. But having a fabricator roll a length of 11 gage sheet to your specifications and weld the seam might be a better route.
