I picked up an anvil several years ago. It is not small by any means. I have never had a proper place to put it, so it has been sitting in the barn since I bought it. I should be moving into a brand new 24'X30' shop this weekend and want to eventually get it set up properly. I am not a blacksmith/knife maker and will never claim to be. I just felt like a proper shop should have an anvil and I couldn't pass it up at the time. My question is, what is the easiest, cheapest and most functional way to come up with a stand? I know some have used tree stumps, but all I really have readily access to is mesquite and I am not sure how well that would work. TIA!.

I've seen lots of anvil stands built out of stacked 2x4's, 2x12's, or 4x4's that are bound together

Piece of oak about 2 feet across cut at length for correct height Start high and cut down as needed for your preferred height.

I've always used a stump.

Remember you want the face of the anvil the height of your closed fist when standing next to it.
