Using your sledge hammer side as a small anvil is brilliant! One of those not-thought-of ideas that is really cool. Small anvils you buy are really iron, so they are not real anvils. But, a sledge hammer is all steel. :)

This instructable is great! I tried making a ring out of bronze but when I wore it me finger turned green because the copper tarnished. Coating it with something on the inside is probably a good idea.

Thanks! Yes it do turn the finger green a bit, to somebody more, somebody less. I can wear them all day and if I don't go running, or have my finger wet, the green in the evening is just slightly noticeable.

But a thin coat of bees wax in the inside part is a good idea.

another option is a product called renaissance wax, it's microcrystalline and gives a nice coating that lasts and buffs to a nice shine on any surface.

Be careful when hitting two hammer heads together, or one against the other in this case, as they are both hardened and could shatter.
