Came up with this lil rig to hold me hammers and such. I call it the belly band. Still gotta welder up though. I made it so that I can move it to other stumps if need be, my stump is gum tree and I don't know how long it'll hold up Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpg, Views: 34, Size: 2.54 MB

Looks good.

I still need a better stump for my anvil. That's a nice set up. we have what I call swamp ash around my house. Fresh it ruins a chainsaw blade in just a few cut. seasoned a year or so not so bad. Turns to paper mush by the third year. Very fibered when I split it. The other tree I get is locust. Hard as a rock and last for ever.

I would love to find some locust wood.  The gum stump I have dosent burn worth a crap, hard as a rock and even termites wont touch it, so it should last a while.  Oh and the little gum balls it has on it are hell on a lawn mower blade and become high speed projectiles when you mow over them!

A little blacksmiths trick to keep your stump (or any other wood in the line of fire) from catching;  mix up some borax and water and coat the wood.  It will smolder but wont burn.
