The project becomes easier when you determine the basic dimensions of the garden kneeling bench you are going to build. The height and length of the bench should be proportional to each other. The height of an average chair is 18 inches; however, the leg varies from person to person. Therefore, for a custom bench, it is ideal to measure your leg length and get just the right dimensions for the height of the bench.
Typically, the width of a garden kneeling bench seat is around 17 or 18 inches. You can try to sit on a pair of benches and chairs to determine the ideal width that provides a comfortable seating area. Cut wood for a simple bench without backrest and armrest is quite simple work. But if you want a bench with a back, you have to decide how high it should be.
At each corner of solid wood plank, cut 1-inch-wide apartments. Make the cut at 45 degrees because this easily breaks up wood to make the legs on the garden kneeling bench. The apartments will end about an inch below the banding. In the outer sides of all legs, make 3-inch and 1-inch deep incision. By doing so, you support the platform and the band. After giving support, tighten the edges to the legs until you find it completely stable. Sand the screws to level the sitting surface.
