Default Easy outdoor cinder block benches

I don't have any place to do this, but like the idea.

There is a lot of material in those, not sure about sitting on treated lumber on a hot day.

Didn't see any mention of treated lumber. I wouldn't want to sit on treated lumber period.

Look at the picture, little holes punched into the sides, makes me think it is treated, maybe they are air holes.

These would make acceptable benches for the paths in my back yard mini-park. I find redwood is the perfect material for our extremes of weather. Have a small bridge across a dry stream bed that's more than 10 years old that is very dark, but holding up well. Trick is to keep the wood off the ground.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Looked at the plans in detail and I agree with Herb, that looks a lot like pressure treated lumber.

To Tom's point, the design would work but the materials need to be changed.
