Here is a build sequence for one of the transitions I built.
1- Proper layout of the CNC cut plates
2- Apply bends with press-brake
3- Clamp some small tabs to ease the outside corner joint fitting
4- Make use of clamps, chain "come-along", clamps, & more clamps for fitting.
5 - And a "porta-power " to help fit the flanges in.
6 - I don't even get to weld it, (it's easier to train a welder than a fitter/fabricator).
7- Back from sand blasting.
8- A view of the ceramic tile interior. A messy job (that I haven't been doing) to withstand the abrasion of flowing grain.
I wish I had a pic with it painted but not ready yet.
