Custom gas pipe

I have a quick question about getting a custom size 1/2" black steel gas pipe (does Home Depot cut custom pipes?????) and the length I am looking for. On both ends are a 90 degree bend so accounting for an inch of thread on each bend, I need a pipe that spans 36 1/2in. My question is what exact measurement pipe do I need to fit into a threaded 90 degree joint on both ends accounting for both the thread on the pipe and the thread in the bend? Hopefully I'm not being too vague........
Thanks for any help!!!!

If you are measuring center to center of 90 deg then 34 1/2"

I don't think HD cuts and threads pipe. You might call a plumber and ask if they would cut pipe for you.

Home Depot and Lowes both cut and thread pipe. So do some hardware stores.
