Blessed Boards prayer benches are made in the USA of high quality, solid hardwoods. They are designed to encourage ideal posture and body mechanics to enrich the prayer experience. The bench legs are designed with an adjustable tilt to accommodate various sitting positions and fine-tune the angle for personalized comfort. Two integrated, hand-carved handles allow for easy maneuvering. The signature cross emblem contains flecks of blessed salt. The benches are finished with an all-natural, oil finish. They are ideal for prayer spaces in the home and beyond.

Small - height in kneeling position is roughly 6.5”, intended for persons under 5’3”

*To evaluate for proper sizing, sit on a stack of books (roughly measured to the above-mentioned heights) with legs to either side of the stack in a reclined kneeling position (to mimic the kneeling position on the bench).
Note: positioning cushions under the knees will limit the spacing under the bench. If this will be common practice then consider purchasing a taller bench. This method may be desirable for those who need more joint comfort or for persons of smaller stature.
