Anvil Stand
« on: February 25, 2017, 04:29:03 AM »
I had picked up this little Vulcan anvil in a trade a while back, and while it is not a great anvil it is smaller and I am getting tired of lugging 150 pounders to demonstrations so I decided to make a stand for it. I had a nice wide poplar plank so I came up with this stand. No nails or screws, and I can take it apart to store. Gravity and the two wooden keys lock it together. I will just need to give it a little paint.

I LIKE THAT!!!!

Don't even worry about the paint,  Looks great the way it is. 
Or linseed oil would do wonders as well.

Thanks guys. I probably will give it some paint, I think I still have some milk paint around here somewhere. Poplar is pretty bad to soak up moisture left unprotected, and as I plan to cart it about for demos it will be outside some in our generally humid weather.

After packing "portable" steel stands around for 25 years, that makes me look like a bloomin' fool.

That is SUPER cool, David!

I have a small anvil this would be perfect for. Whenever I finish the flint build I have going I may
Give this a try. Thanks for posting.

Please don't paint it.  I would just go over it with a good preservative, like Water Seal, and let it color naturally.
