Architectural Pergola Hardware

Hope someone can point me in the right direction. I have a 20x12 Cedar pergola in the works and I want to add some personal touches by including some Architectual hardware to it. I am refering to the thick, usually black, steel connectors you would see in a restaurant with exposed beams for example. I have searched and searched the internet for a long time and I can't find anyone who sells them, I do come across sites for companies who build pergolas and will see the hardware being used but usually with no reference to where it came from. I hope someone here has as some knowledge on this.

Welcome to the forums.

I'm trying to picture what you are looking for. Have you seen them in online photos ?
Maybe you could leave a link so we can check them out and get a better idea what you are looking for.

Since almost every application is unique I assume structural pieces like that are custom made. If you can sketch up what you want a local steel or welding shop should be able to fabricate them for you. Stuff like that is pretty easy to make so the cost should be reasonable.

Don't walk into a weld shop and start asking for these metal things and wave you're hands around. They will probably not be received well. But, if you have a drawing/sketch of what you want, with dimensions that you can hand to them and say "make this" it should be a pretty simple job.
