You’ve purchased a welder and completed the welding projects it was initially intended for and now wonder what’s next? Why not start with a few rebar welding projects?
Rebar is readily available at your local home supply store, steel supply store or you can round up some scrap rebar and recycle it.
Rebar is an inexpensive material that you can experiment with.
Along with a simple rebar bender you can create a wide variety of useful welding projects.
This fun hobby can also evolve into a nice side hustle to make extra money selling your creations online, at a craft show, or at events.
If you need to figure out what sizes are available for your projects, here’s a handy rebar size chart for a reference guide.
I like rebar because it is extremely versatile, easy to weld, and has a rustic industrial look to it. I hope the ideas in this article will inspire you to get started welding with rebar and creating some great projects.
