I am creating a half bridge, I though about it a bit and came up with this idea First for the controlling side we have a typical 555 timer wired up like this


(But the resistors are variable resistors to adjust output frequency) It's output is then fed into a mosfet driver (Which i don't know how to quite use yet)( It is an IR 2112) in this way http://prntscr.com/4gk1kv and then the mosfet driver's output is connected to the two mosfets in my Half bridge, Is skipping a gate drive transformer safe for this? Also,Is all the wiring correct?

Yes, you can skip the transformer; this type of driver chip is specifically designed to replace transformers.

I can't answer about "all the wiring", since you haven't shown it to us. You've only shown us snippets.
