You'd need a welding set, probably a MIG welding set however I reckon you'd need to be pretty skilled to achieve welds that neat...

TIG welding would be the best way to approach that kind of thing (in my opinion) as it allows you to fuse ferrous and non ferrous metals with little or no extra material being added, whereas with MIG or MMA welding you have to add filler material (either a welding rod or wire, which does create limitations on the types of metal you can weld as, in the mainstream at least, you can only really get mild steel, stainless steel or aluminium), with soldering you don't melt the parent metal (so you have to add material) and (assuming that would actually be quite heavy when finished), I doubt soldering would be strong enough without using large blobs of solder. There's also brazing which is a similar principle to soldering but (if I remember correctly) it uses a brass alloy filler material, hotter process but also stronger.
