Makeshift anvil

Recommended Posts

For a stand, less pieces is usually better. If you had access to a tree stump segment, that would be better. Also; cut the burned ends of the rail off; and mount it vertically. You really don't need more surface than the size of your hammer; but you want it to be fixed as solid as possible. I got myself a rail too; then mounted it vertically to a block of wood; then welded 2 pieces of metal to each size of the rail (those welding plates they use to attach one rail to the other ), and ground the surface flat, welded hardfacing rod, ground again  and so on ... used that for about 2 years until I had access to much better anvils. 

Seriously, the white boards will shatter and make the whole unstable after a while; and the long pieces sticking out on the sides cannot be used either.
