This hand-crafted meditation bench is made of beautifully spalted maple (even contains some curly grain structure) and has three green malachite gemstones set into one side.  "Malachite reveals the truth about oneself and brings to the surface that which is unknown or unseen to the conscious mind. When used, worn or meditated upon, it will draw out and reflect whatever is impeding spiritual growth, and is best used in conjunction with meditation to help balance and release the debris that is revealed." [1] 


The front of the bench is a "free edge."  (The natural shape of the wood just below the bark was preserved.)  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.
