Concrete Cinder-Block Outdoor Seating


I am looking in building an outdoor seating area around my Fire Pit. I want to use Cinder Block and then finish it off with a concrete texture.

Does anyone have any links or input on how to complete this project?

Concrete Cinder-Block Outdoor Seating


How's this look?

Two rows of block... however long you want them... with two styles of 2-1/4" curved pipe set in concrete inside the cells.

Anchor it to a slab with rebar poured in the same cells as the curved pipes.

Finish it off with nice polished wood.

Nobody wants to sit on concrete... especially in the wintertime.

The cost for the above will be A LOT higher than I want to spend right now. I lost my job.

Also, I am in Arizona, so winter time is not a factor. I was looking more for a complete cinder block setup with a capstone for the seating area. I can make the seating area out of thick flagstone.
