    Here's what you'll need:

    • 20 8x8x16 cinder blocks
    • 10 4x8x16 cap blocks
    • 2 grates

    Step 1: Build a wall of 12 cinder blocks, 3 wide by 4 high, with the cinder blocks lying end to end. The holes should be on the top and bottom except for the two cinder blocks at the bottom of the center column. Those need to be sideways so that the holes are on the front and back of the wall. It should look like the image below.

    Step 2: On each end of the wall, stack 4 more cinder blocks sticking out from the wall. Again, the holes should be on the top and bottom. See the image below.

    More Cinder Blocks

    Step 3: Lay two cap blocks on the ground next to these two new walls, then lay the grate across them.

    Step 4: Stack three more cap blocks on each side, then lay another grate across them. Top it off with one more cap block on each side. The final product should look like the video below.

    Be sure to watch the video below to see how it's done and get more tips and suggestions.
