One side of the family has Christmas the weekend before and all the gifts go in the middle, everyone gets a card, and lowest chooses first. You can either take a gift from the middle or one from another person. It ends when the last gift is opened from the middle. My sister in law (sort of) wanted one of these, but it wasn't in the cards. So after a few pictures of it on the landing and she got it on Christmas day. Nothing like giving your family members the bird and them actually appreciating it.

So after a Christmas High Heel stocking it was nice to cut and burn some steel.

Stocking link....

lets get to it...

Step 1: Materials

Welder (gloves, helmet, safety glasses, slag hammer)
Hack saw (saws all if you have one)
Vice grip pliers
Cutters / lines man pliers (large enough to cut a nail head or use the hack saw)
Pipe 3/4 in black 3 ft long (to bend the re bar)

3 pieces - 2 ft re bar (choose the thickness you like)
2 fender washers (the diameter of the bolt will be the eye opening. I used 3/8in)
weld rod (I used 5 or so 1ft sticks)
one new or old shovel (hand small)
clear paint (respirator for protection)
3 - #16 nails
This is really awesome. I am just learning to weld and made this as my second project and everyone that has seen it has loved it. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
What an idea. <br>
Love,love this,but do not know how to weld. Will have to try JB Weld.. if not maybe I could purchase one from you.
