If I use studding (threaded bar), how can I make a coach bold styne

Any other ideas? These to join concrete uprights of sectional building.

Doming it should not be too much of a problem torch or gas welding equipment and something you can use as an anvil, making the squared bit will require set and dolly. If all you want is a head then welding a nut on the end of the studding is probably the easiest solution.

Or, depending on the diameter of the hole, join some studding to cheap
/ std coach bolts with some 'stud connectors' (locked up with a hard
locking compound if necessary)?

Apparently Crispy Bacon doesn't want my advice because I'm a ******.
