    Re: BandAid's Anvil

    MD, Never been to East Texas, Huh?  No such thing as a dry heat here.  Lots of humidity from the Gulf, lakes rivers, ponds, and everything is so green it hurts your eyes.  Nope. It ain't a dry heat.  The Relative Humidity in the morning often hits 100% although is does dry off a bit toward sundown.  You must be thinking of WEST Texas.  So dry out there the bushes follow the dogs around.

    'Have you ever felt a Texas Summer? ' I hear you Cap'n, but isn't that a 'dry' heat?

    The anvil is black walnut as is the hammer head. The base and hammer handle are butternut. The anvil measures about 4' tall and 8' long.

    My thanks to all for the kind words about my wooden anvil.  I guess this falls under the science of 'woodallurgy'.  MD, WHAT?! You have all the tools at work and it's too hot in Ohio?  Have you ever felt a Texas Summer?  Anytime is a good time to make carving knives.

    That's a beauty, Cap'n. Is that a little reverse metallurgy? Of course, modern metallurgists arre material scientists, dabbling in all materials. You're going to get me hooked on knife making one of these days. We have everything I need at work, since we do our own tool and die work and heat treat our own tooling. Sounds like I'm missing a little gumption, huh? I can always claim that heat treating isn't summer work in Ohio; I'll have to wait until winter. Keep up the good work and keep posting those pictures.

    Al, thanks. It was really pretty simple. I cut it out on the bandsaw, shaped it with the beltsander and drum sander. Finish sanded it, stained and lacquered it, glued it down. It is currently sitting on my desk at work with my business cards resting between the hammer and the anvil.

    This is probably late, but I haven't been over at the picturetrail site to prowl for a long time. Capt. Bandaid, that Anvil and Hammer are REALLY neat!!!!

    Nice work, and quite innovative.
