I made three of these 25" wide, 4" tall hypertufa millstone for decorations. Used a hot water heater drain pan for a mold and a piece of 4" tall lawn edging.
Then drew the lines on the 2nd day and unmolded.

Good job! I'm wondering how much they weigh?

RE: hypertufa millstone

Hi posieh,
these weigh approx 40-45 pounds.
I use in equal parts, 1 five gallon bucket of portland cement, 1 five gallon bucket of peat moss, 1 five gallon bucket of perlite.
((A 90 pound bag of portland cement will fill a five gallon bucket "twice".))
I'm trying to plan some other projects.
