Angle Grinder, Rebar, and a little update...

Originally I wanted to buy 20 ft. of Rebar, but we couldn't get it home without cutting it at the Store.
Apparently though, no one could cut the rebar at the Store.  You would think they would have a tool for that, but they only had bolt cutters...that didn't work.

So we left with no rebar, and I returned to another Store the next morning.  No one could cut the rebar there either, so I ended up buying about 70 pieces of 4 ft. rebar!  Lucky for me, the manager discounted them down to $1.00 a piece. 

My Dad was for sure we could cut them down to 3 ft. with his 16" bolt cutters...

He was able to cut ONE, but there was NO WAY we would be able to cut 70 pieces!!!

This is me trying ((unsuccessfully) to cut 1 piece of rebar!!!

So I left to go pick up some bigger bolt cutters, and came back with an Angle Grinder instead...oh, and an awesome Face Shield!

Ummm...this may be my new favorite tool!!!

It's called an Angle Grinder!!!

I'm using it to cut through the Rebar, and it works wonderfully!

So here's a quick look at exactly why I'm cutting Rebar...

((excuse the mess.  I JUST cleaned my entire house, and now I need to make a trip to the Donation drop-off!))

We are building Staircase Railing made out of Rebar!
I say "we", but there is no way I could do this without my awesome Dad!...he's got some major skillzzzz! =) 

My inspiration:

Such a great idea. Rebar for spindles in a rustic log cabin. 
So that's the latest update on the DIY Spiral Stairs!!!
...almost DONE!!!

    I hope this finds you doing well. So in December we released a new app, Obaby (obabyapp.com). We think it's awesome. :) Would you like to try it out? If so, I'll send you a code for a free download. Please just let me know. Thanks!
