If you have a source, some people use small section of railroad track as a small anvil.
I found a rivet forge and tools cheap at an auction. I had a lot of fun hammering away but not all that productive! I ended up taking a few classes from a local smith and read a few books. It is definitely a skill that you can learn the basics quite quickly.
