Gosh if that's the case then I better start mass producing these babies and make a little $$$.  They would be super pricey to ship though.

I like this idea and am thinking it would be cool - even inside. It would clean your shoes nicely - I think. I live in the basement so any kind of outdoors I can bring in would be a good thing! Thanks for the idea!

I think I might try the floor mat on a smaller scale. I might try to make trivets in time for Easter dinner. I always have more hot dishes than I have things to put them on!

Great Idea!! You'd be able to see them more often too. 

I'd suggest you use a cork base or one of those metal base thingys.

Good luck...post pictures when you're done. We'd love to see.

Ha! I think they'd be seen more if I made a floor mat...I only cook for people once a year... Wink

Thanks for the suggestion- I was trying to think of a way to make it a little more sturdy! I was thinking a piece of plexiglass, but that can get kind of pricey. Cork might work perfectly!

I have a question.  I'm redoing a bathroom that has a granite floor with river rock inserts.   It's a double-sink vanity, and we have a large wooden mirror above it.  Before rehanging the mirror, I'd like to accent it with river rocks like the ones in the floor.  Does all of this information (about landscaper adhesive, etc.) apply equally to gluing these rocks to wood?  What about the silicone someone talked about?  Thanks for any additional info.

I wouldn't use the landscape adhesive or the silicone.  Look for some kind of bonding stuff that's just for rock to wood.  Maybe ask at Home Depot or something. I've found that the rock have come off a little when using the landscape adhesive and silicone is really a sealant not an adhesive. Maybe Gorilla Glue or a 2 part epoxy.

This is such a cool idea. I bet it would feel great on your feet after it's been in the sun. I might just have to make one for my dorm room.
