The first time you hear the word stoneboat you might think it’s the biggest oxymoron in the English language — but it’s really a drag used to transport heavy objects. Going off some designs in an old farmers almanac, reader Blitzcat built this one to haul granite stones, weighing somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 to 900 pounds, around his yard.
He says it worked pretty well once the runners were nice and muddy, and he could pull it by himself. It looks to us like a great way to move some heavy objects without spending a bunch of cash. Rock on, Blitzcat!
