    Working on a estimate for some tree rings. Is there a formula somewhere? Cannot find one. For circle rings. one i have to do has a diameter of 6' and needs to be about 4 blocks high. How can I figure out how many blocks I need? Blocks are 3.94x7.9x11.8 Thanks for any help you can give.:confused:

    maybe just figure out the circumference of the circle in inches, then figure out how many blocks you need to make a line that long.

    Then muliply x 4

    That should get you within a couple blocks I would think.

    Pi= 3.14 times R2 or 3.14 times the diameter.
