Just incorporate the bar design around the cinderblock.
Why is that wall there?
Why can't you remove it?

It's somewhat of a support wall. I was jus trying to figure how to build wood base around it. Would u secure plywood to it and go from there? How u secure plywood?

One way is to frame the whole thing with 2x4's and secure your face plywood to the frame rather than the block. The frame will add dimension to it, but would be really secure place to attach sheet rock, or plywood.

Just use treated wood as the footer for the frame as it appears to be in a basement?

If the Cinder Block does not get moist you can just glue the plywood or "finished wood" directly to the Cinder Block and use some corner molding to finish it off. Saves money and time.

You can not predict that it will never get moist. I agree you could do it that way, but the first time it gets wet... the glue will probably begin to fail.
