Parts and Tools: four concrete deck blocks; hand tamper, torpedo level Prepare the surface by tamping down the area where the concrete deck blocks will go. You can make your own hand tamper by nailing a 12-inch piece of 2 x 6 to the end of 4 x 4 post. Position deck blocks to create a layout measuring roughly 6 x 8 feet. Ensure that the blocks are seated level on the ground. Verify that the layout is square by checking that the diagonals measure 10 feet. - PopularMechanics.com
