The Wonder Bar for your DIY Demolition

Pin It

Wonder BArThe Wonder bar, the name says it all. No there are no buttons for low or high speed, you can’t even plug The Wonder bar is just a bar. I’m going to tell you how I used my wonder bar over the years for various DIY projects.

If you’re a Do-it yourself kind of person and like to take on projects yourself, most of the time the first thing that you have to do in any project is the demolition. I can tell you there is no better tool than the Wonder Bar.

The First Project with My Wonder Bar:

When we closed on our house, we had some serious work do to. Working on a budget we decided to take on as much as we could in an effort to save some money. The very first thing we did was tear out all of the old carpet, in the living room, hallway and bedrooms. After rolling up all of the old carpet and hauling it out to the curb. We had rows and rows of carpet tacks that they used to tack down the padding, and the tack strips along the baseboard were nailed in tight. Our carpet installer told us that they all had to come out.

I bought not one but two Wonder Bars; I couldn’t handle two at a time so my wife used the other one. We spent a couple of days removing the tacks, the tack strips, and the baseboard in preparation for our new carpet. The angled end of the Wonder Bar made short work of the tacks in the floor, and we used the flat end for removing the tack strips and baseboard.

The Second Project:

Removing the deck boards from our outside deck, prying up the boards on the old deck was easy using the wonder bar. I’m sorry that I’m using the word easy, because it was a lot of work, but the Wonder Bar was a huge help.

The Third Project:

Removing the old tile from the bathroom floor was easy using the flat end of the bar and a hammer. I can go on and on as to how many times I used this tool, but think you get the idea. If you have some demolition in your DIY project, I recommend the Wonder Bar from Stanley.
