  • About Simply Woodcrafts

    Since 1990 we have been building our quality meditation stools and meditation chairs in the Blue Mountains of Australia and providing you with a supportive, comfortable and practical aid to make your meditation most beneficial. We make Meditation Stools for different body types.

     

    Simply Woodcrafts Building Quality Meditation Stools for over 30 years.

    Back in 1989 I was preparing myself for a 10 day Vipassana meditation retreat. At the time I had great difficulty sitting cross-legged and experienced discomfort in my lower back and legs. I made myself a basic Meditation Stool from 3 pieces of timber. That first stool enabled me to sit comfortably in an upright posture. I successfully completed my meditation retreat and continue to benefit greatly from the practice.

    Motivated by my own positive experience and using the stool as a prototype I was inspired to make my Meditation Stools available to a wider group of people. I am a Swiss trained tradesman accustomed to use trusted and proven methods which will deliver lasting results.

    I have personally manufactured some of the equipment that I needed to produce the detailed joinery essential for quality Meditation Stools. My aim is to create a meditation stool that is both user and environment friendly.
     
    About The Raw Materials We Use
    We build our stools using selected timbers, from plantations or Australian managed regrowth forest areas. We aim using Australian and New Zealand plantation Radiata pine and Victorian ash. At the moment any new Radiata pine timber and Plywood is mostly from New Zealand. The finished product is protected and Hand finished with natural paint products.

    By carefully selecting the grain of the timber and incorporating quality joinery, hardware and finishes, our product is purpose built and with proper care can be a long-lasting piece of furniture.

    Packaging
    We try to use Recycled packing materials as far as practical possible.

    About Our Stools
    As different people are different sizes, I needed to know how to determine the heights of Meditation Stools that I was going to build. I used my own body as a guide; I am 180 cm tall and of slim build. Without using a stool I can normally sit on my ankles in a kneeling position for about 10 minutes quite comfortably. I built a stool that would support my weight just slightly above my lower legs. This was the first stool that I made for myself. This Extra Low Meditation Stool was also the stool with the least height I could possibly build so that my legs would just fit under it. This stool became my personal meditation stool for years to come.

    Excited by my new stool, I showed it to my friends, but to my surprise only a few of them could sit on it. It was too low for most of them. Only those who practiced yoga or similar exercises or who were accustomed to sitting in this posture (in Japan it is called Seiza), could sit comfortably on it. With this feedback, I investigated further to find a height that would suit most users. As well as increasing the height of the stool, I set the slope of the seat at a slightly steeper angle.

    This became the Standard Meditation Stool. It has proved to be compatible with the most users. Given the choice, 3 out of 4 slim built people, who had a natural inclination to sit in a partial kneeling position, and who ranged in body height between 165cm and 185cm seemed to be quite happy with this stool.

    Refining the product further, I found that some people could sit slightly lower, and an intermediate height, the Low Meditation Stool was created. Some clients expressed their desire for more leg space than the standard height, and also people with a body height of 190 cm or more would frequently ask for a taller stool. For that requirement the

    High Meditation Stool was built.

    I sold the first set of Standard Meditation Stools in Autumn 1990 to a local bookstore in Katoomba, Blue Mountains.

    Since then, demand has grown and the range of Stools has expanded and now includes the very popular

    Folding Meditation Stools.

    We are always looking for ways to meet your needs. Constant refinement and innovations are our driving force. Our latest product is a Meditation Chair that gives lower back support for people who like to sit cross-legged.
