Anybody have an idea of what the arc is on the legs of a typical kneeling mediation bench? I’ve also seen one that has two different arcs for sitting higher and lower.

Thinking of making one but not sure about curving the legs.

Can you show a pic as an example. I do not know what a kneeling meditation bench is. A church thing?

Jat, I wasn’t familiar with kneeling meditation benches and the google images I looked at didn’t include arcs. I would find a pic of one I like and estimate the arc by eye. Cut a thin strip of maple or similar and bend it to various degrees until you find one that looks good to your eye. You might even make a full size drawing and trace various curves from the bent strip until you find one that suits you. FWIW
