We study the stable norm on the first homology of a Riemannian polyhedron. In the one-dimensional case (metric graphs), the geometry of the unit ball of this norm is completely described by the combinatorial structure of the graph. For a smooth manifold of dimension ≥ 3 and using polyhedral techniques, we show that a large class of polytopes appears as unit ball of the stable norm associated to some metric conformal to a given one.
