I wanted to make it look like an old boiler, or something.
I cut the heads off of about 70 carriage head bolts, drilled about 70 holes, and welded them in to look like rivets.
Wish I had the tools to do real rivets, assuming you can even buy them somewhere anymore.
The grills are 1/2" round bar, 3/4" oc, I drilled holes in some 1" flat, and welded the round bar in from the outside ( Next time I want to use stainless round bar, if I can find the money for it ) The 1/2" was leftover from the patio railings.
