This looks sweet but a lot of work, any other ideas? I think I need to keep it around 150lbs, as I have no Idea how much I could lift with a stone.

i used a mold and have made several. never gone the homemade mold route and I suspect is could be a disaster until you get it dialed in. I'd suggest starting with another type of odd object and seeing how you like it. a tight sand bag or a keg filled with water and then sand will get you used to odd object lifting. I have a little 250 pound keg in my yard that I like. A 150 pound stone if you've never lifted one is a surprise.
