What You Can Do With Old Steel

When something that you own no longer works and it contains steel rebar or a hollow pipe, do not throw the steel away. You may be able to still use the steel for your own quality steel fabrication projects.

Rebar Chairs

Rebar can be reused to form the base of a chair. While there are expensive tools you can use to bend the rebar into a shape most useful for a chair, you could also use the inexpensive French curve, a jig.

Hollow Pipe

Hollow pipes can be used to create industrial-style shelves. Once you have constructed the frame from steel pipes, you can then place wooden shelves inside the frame.

Scrapping Steel

The great news is that steel is a highly recyclable product. Even if you cannot find a way to reuse it, you can still take it to a scrapyard to have it recycled.
