I played around with coffee stirrer straws (top picture), using 50mm straws for 25mm tubes, 40mm straws for 20mm tubes etc, and could approximate things that way. For the most part I'd like to stick with cutting my metal tubes in lengths of 5, 10, 15, 20mm etc. Otherwise it's just too hard to keep track of things. But for a given piece I can always pick one element (like the tube on the very outside) and make it whatever I need to make the shape come out right. Anyway, I'm still learning, still having fun.
