Our 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.

Small - height in kneeling position is roughly 6.5in, intended for persons under 5’3”
Medium - height in kneeling position is roughly 7.5in, intended for persons between 5’3” and 5’10”
Large - height in kneeling position is roughly 8.5in, intended for persons over 5’10” or individuals with long legs or restricted movement
*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.
Each Blessed Boards product begins with domestic, rough-sawn, hardwood lumber. It then goes through our in-house milling process after which it “rests” and stabilizes.
From there the piece is meticulously crafted to perfection with close attention to detail and hand-finished with all-natural oils or hard wax.
No stains or dyes are used in our finishing processes. Rather, the natural color and beauty of the wood is highlighted.
