Is this now my rebar should look?


I hope it is a concrete tub and not just cement.

Got a hole and 50, 80 pound bags of crack-resistant concrete.

Waiting on HD to deliver my cement mixer and I ordered a rebar bender / cutter off amazon. I need to get the form built next.

Plan is to form the rebar, then put an inch of gravel, then pour the floor. Should take 8 cubic feet of concrete to pour 4" deep, so that's 14 bags, and I'll probably go more like 16. Once it sets, I'm going to place in my plywood form, with plastic sheeting over it, and then use as much concrete as I need to do the walls in one pour. Then I'm going to vibrate it, then use a hammer / circular saw to cut out the form.

Does that sound right?
