15 Uses for Miniature Cinder Blocks (Or real cinder blocks too...)

We get the question from people all the time, who is buying your cinder blocks and what are they doing with them?  Well, we've compiled a list of just some of the many uses for our mini blocks and other building materials. 


1. Set up a mini firepit

Everyone enjoys sitting by the fire roasting some marshmallows, so why not replicate that great pastime in miniature form?


2. Put up a fort

 Nothing is coming through this fortress!



3. Build a little planter

Miniature gardens are far more appealing than regular sized gardens, look how cute they can be. 


4. Make a desktop pen holder

A great place to store those pesky pens that seem to grow legs.

Build something your coworkers will be so jealous of they'll want to steal your phone holder more than your phone.
