I have decided to go with the 1/8 inch brass for bending around the table top. It's local, more affordable, thicker and more sturdy, but will also entail I quickly re-acquaint myself with metal heating and bending specifically for brass. Some say it can be bent cold but mostly I'm reading that one should heat it to just under red hot then dip it in cold water to anneal it. 

Found image of my installation at de Young.  Okay, I googled myself+baskets. Nice!
