New Throne for my Old Anvil

Recommended Posts

Finally got around to making a proper stand for my Hay Budden anvil. About a year ago, a friend gave me a very large piece of oak log for an anvil stand. It was almost 34" diameter on the small end. Not having a chain saw large enough to square the beast, it became a drive way ornament.
This week I was told to, use it or move it, by "she who must be obeyed". With the aid of two steel wedges and a couple of home made wooden ones, I finally got it to about 14"x16" on the small end.
It is about 12" in the ground and really makes for a sound base.
Here are the before and after pics.
