Default question on my build

ok my previous thread im building a bbq out of a 30 gallon drum. anyways the question is. is there some type of molding i guess you would call it that i can put on the around the edges of the drum where i cut? im not sure if im explaining it good just let me know. this way it will cover the sharp edges and also add to it aesthetically.

I would imagine it is either square tubing, or flat iron welded against the edge of the barrel.
