$8 Rebar Pallet Ripper

SO you were surfing Pinterest at 2 am because you've got the itch to make something trendy and upcycled from a pallet. The only problem is now you've got to take apart said pallet, and if you haven't done that before, well, welcome to the club of discouragement. A cheapo pallet tool from Homedepot starts at $40 and goes up to around $300 essentially a crowbar with two teeth that just lifts the board out.

Materials Required:

2x 10ft 1/2 inch Rebar aprox. $4.25 at home depot

Boom that's it!


Tools Required:

Welder of some kind, I will be using the flux core cheepo welding machine from harbor freight that i got for $80


Duct Tape

Measuring device
