Cinder Block Bench
I got ahead of myself and didn't stop to take pictures of setting up the cinders.
There are a couple of options as to how to set the cinder blocks up. You can stand the cinders on end in a row of four and place the beam in the top opening, or you can top the row of 4 cinders with an additional 2 cinders placed horizontally and thread the beams through those openings.
It really just depends on how high you want your seat to be from the ground. When you are happy with your cinder block placement you can then use cement adhesive to secure their placement and to enhance stability.

Saw someone had asked the cost of this but the question wasn't answered.
Using yellow pine for the wood it appears to be that without cushions the minimum cost to make this today in May 2020 is $105.00 using blocks @ $2 each & paint @$4 a can.
