If your going to use rebar don't waste your money at a hardware store
buying precut 10ft lengths. Go to a building supply and get  20ft
lengths used in commercial construction they are much cheaper. 3/8 thick
works best and its much easier to handle. You will need a chop saw to
cut them, angle grinders are too slow and sawalls will cost more in
blades than its worth. The best cutter is a shears, the hand operated
type with a 5ft lever they cost around $350-450 but cut rebar as easy as
pruning a fruit tree branch with a lops. Definitely a winter project...
