A fab shop could do it reasonably, if you want just use an angle grinder to cut your pieces out and take them to be welded up. I usually start by making a cardboard model of my part to check for fit, then lay it out on a piece of steel by painting it with primer and using an awl to scribe out my cuts. Then use a length of angle stock as a guide to score the metal almost all tha way through with an angle grinder and cut off wheel. Then use a pipe wrench to break away the scored section and clean it up with a grinding wheel. A couple of welding clamps will help hold your cutting guide in place. A good place to get your stuff welded up for a good price is your local trade school, usually if the parts are pre cut they are more than happy to stitch up your parts for free.
