A friend of mine gave me this anvil the other day. Belonged to her husband. They're close family friends but he passed a few years ago. She thought I might like to have this, and I do... the patent date is sept. 22, 1914. Not exactly sure how old it is. I believe it's cast iron and hollow, so no heavy hitting. It used to be an anvil/vise combo.
Well, second piece of furniture ever and first in easily 6 years. Cathedral Anvil styled end table or seat, whatever you feel like. The osage orange top is shaped to mimic the impressive sway seen on most old anvils while retaining a flat usable surface. I wanted to try and capture the gesture of the anvil with the forgings, and the side pieces started as 1"x1" bars, and the feet started as 1"x3" stock. 24" x 24" x 8" overall space. I'll take real photos after another few coats of oil! It's also available if anyones interested in some weird furniture. . . .
So for my first wasteland weekend i decided to make myself a nice leather hat, so i dont die in the heat! Now it is adorned with barters I acquired at the event! Gonna get more stuff for it next year!!! Visit my page to view more @blacksmithing_social Via : @lionheartcustomcreations
