If you are looking for plans on how to create a pretty “stone” for Highland Games training, this is not the place for you. Run away!
But if you’re not very handy or creative, but have lots of loose small weight plates and rolls of duct tape burning a hole in your garage, then this is the place for you!
I used four 5lb standard (1″ hole for the bar) plates for the “core” of my 28lb Glob. This isn’t rocket science folks. Duct taped them together very tightly.
I used miscellaneous pieces of bent steel and even threw in a brass door hinge, because I wasn’t using it and it had been sitting in my garage for years. I used pieces of cut foam to attempt to mold it into some semblance of a round shape.
I used enough duct tape to lift a ’57 Chevy to “tie” it all together. It has taken the pounding of being thrown pretty well. It is on the slick side when it gets slightly damp though.
