How to make an anvil from a rail

Hello dear readers and DIY !
One of the most useful tools in a workshop or garage is an anvil.
In this article Ivan, the author of the YouTube channel “HandCraft”, will tell you how you can make a good anvil from plywood and rail.
 How to make an anvil from a rail This project can be repeated in a small workshop, and it will require a small amount of welding work.
Materials needed for DIY.
– Rail, steel profile pipe
– Steel sheet
– Thick plywood, confirmations
– Cut-off and flap grinding discs – Masking tape, degreaser, metal primer, spray paint – Joiner's glue, machine oil, sandpaper.
Manufacturing process.
First of all, the master performs one of the laborious tasks – you need to cut off a part of the rail 200 mm long.
Of course, a Bulgarian can cope with such a task, but it is easier to do it on a band saw.
