Hey Gary!...Been a while…Nice to see you still active…

Cool project!!!

Was given a section of track just like that years ago…never did anything with it, but if I needed to, this would be a great plan…Cool man…Best to you

I keep it in the photo 2 orientation cause it looks better, it still took me 2 days to complete because of the glue-ups.No real plans just tracing the profile.

I found a 6’ section of rail once, thought it’d make a great front bumper, until I tried to lift it into the truck 8^P

I also have a few short sections, love your idea! Makes the flat side useful.

Very cool…love the convertible feature. I saved YT vid by PatonHaus that made a similar one couple years ago. Thanks for reminding me to finish making it!

Nice job making it reversible. I had an RR iron anvil for a while until I bought a proper anvil. The best results I got from it Was when I stood it on end so that I used the end as the hammer surface. Not a lot of surface area but had a couple small horns and good energy return.

There was another one posted on you tube that was similar but had the plywood pieces running from end-to-end. I like yours better.
