I just finally got all the stuff for my new system. I have been having some trouble sourcing some marble/granite/quartz scrap. I was walking through Lowes last night trying to think of something to use and it hit me as I was walking by the lawn and garden area...a Paver!

I highly doubt that I'm the first to think of this, but I didn't find any others using a search. I found the smoothest nicest looking paver I could find. I found a nice thick & heavy red one. It was $0.87. I then bought a 3/16" masonry bit ($2.95) and a 1/2" masonry bit ($3.95) to do the holes and countersinks. Here is the results. I'm digging it. I've since got a piece of leftover granite countertop, but I'd have to cut it and polish the edges...I'm going to just see how this works out.

Welcome to the forum!

Looks good... gives it a bit of a rustic look.

Welcome! There's a creative mind at work! :P
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?
