does anyone have any good ideas or plans for a stylish, collapsible meditation or seiza bench? i've had a request from a friend and all I can find are really lame plans with hinges on the legs.


thanks,
Jane

Here's one idea for a knockdown bench without hinges:

The meditation bench Kari made for Nancy is absolutely beautiful. A simple (for her) Sankrit symbol in the center.

I actually looked at this bench last month, for an Eagle Scout gift. Unfortunately, timing was way off to be able to complete it for the ceremony. It's still on the plans, though.

If you wanted to go rustic, it should be simple to use a half log and drill four holes for post legs, which should not require plans.
