more photos. One of these shows the anvil on the log before I stripped the paint and mounted it.

This is the only thing that I have made so far. It is a twisted bottle opener made from a rail road spike. I got it too hot in the forge. I learned a lot and I think the next one will turn out a lot better. Anyone have any advise on what I should try to make next to learn some basic skills?

Drill 5/8" holes with a spade bit and you can use railroad spikes to hold the anvil tight to the stump. Looks a lot more correct.

I plan on doing that. I have to find some more rail road spikes first. The lag bolts are temporary. Thanks
