Excellent work! I was just thinking that for all the trouble you went to on that, maybe you should make a mold of it before it goes wherever it's going. Somewhere down the road a foundry could cast that into a serious anvil. It would be easy enough for you to cover it with vaseline and make a plaster mold of it. I have no idea what a steel casting would cost, but the plaster would be cheap enough for the sake of posterity. Just a thought.

I figure this "anvil" will eventually be part of a sign for in front of my shop, in the mean time its just fun to take to a hammer-in and leave it sitting on the back of the truck, and play the "I dare you to lift that game", I did save the paper paterns in the original and the scaled up size. One very cool other possibility would be to put a door at the waist of it and have a flag to stick in the hardy, and youd have the best mailbox in the neighborhood
