Yup! Got into making these things a long time ago. Still have a 275 pound stone sitting in my backyard.

I made mine off an old recipe using plaster and a big 4 square ball though, I didn't buy a mold.

nice! I want a big stone for conditioning... figured 300lbs is plenty big but have heard mixed things about slater molds.

You need to tape the mold shut, also make sure you vibrate the mold after you pack it (I used a back vibrator on the outside) it gets the air bubbles out. Once you take the stone out, put in a plastic garbage bag for a week. This will ensure a completely cured stone and it will be bulletproof.
