i have been building a new patio and ran out of bricks, so i got some presure treated lumber 2×4 from a box store and made up the difference ,they are the same with of the brick so i knotched them together and it worked out right on the measurements. its a 12×20 still working on the cabinets and counter top getting there thou . my neighbor gave me a old bar that im wrapping with cedar to match the cabinets when it get done i’ll be thur and post it. but the floor came out a lot nicer than i thought

That was a great way to extend your stone. The mix of wood and stone seems just right!
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

Great idea to stretch out existing supplies. One concern….did you make sure that the treated 2×4’s were rated for ground contact. Most in my area are not.
