I'm thinking I'd like a stump, in my studio, that I can attach my
anvil and vice to. What kind of stump is good or does it really
matter? Also, what is the desired size, especially the height?
Mine is oak.
I just got the biggest one I could find. I had to pay the tree
trimmers to cut it flat on both ends but they were happy to deliver
it free. http://www.ganoksin.com/ftp/stump1.jpg
I covered it with leather because the moisture in it (even after
sitting outside in the sun for a year) was rusting my tools, and
because it looks steampunkish. I dragged it to the back door with a
logging chain attached to my Subaru and moved it to where it is with
furniture sliders and lots of cursing.
