Made My Atlas Stone

Had a go at making my own atlas stone. It came out to about 150lbs. I wanted to make one for some practice because i didnt really know what to expect. Im going to be making another one about 180-200lbs probably.

As you can see from the picture I made the hole on top of the mold too big so it wasnt so easy shaping off the top. But i think i did quite well for a first try. Now i know what to do and what not to do.

I still have to go get some sealer too smooth off some of the rough spots.

You can also see where i added some more to the top of the ball because it was slightly flat on the top.

    Bengdogg I havent tested it dropping it yet because i just took it out yesterday so it needs more time to fully dry. But i wont be dropping it on anything other than grass/dirt so it wont break.

    Nice, very nice. Too bad I'm so crap at DIY stuff... it would take me something like 32 tries to get one decent rock done.

    Where did you get the mold from or what is it? I would love to try to make a few of these babies. Did you get it off a website? I figure if you use concrete you can just file it down to make it smother to give you a better grip work.

    Btw I would carve a smilie in it or at least your initials and date =)

    That site tells you everything you need to know.

    This fascinates me! I really don't know what I would do with one, but it seems like it would be fun. How do you know how heavy a one you could handle, and is there any way to make it big, but not as heavy?
