The bench includes a comfortable and removable 2-inch think cushion enabling the meditator to remain quite comfortable during long meditations. Bench dimensions are 7-inches high at the back with a 15 degree slope. It is 17-inches wide and 7-inches deep. It contains a hand-hold for ease of carrying. Sides are joined to top with half-blind dovetails. Use it with a zabuton or folded blanket underneath.
