I'm with Katherine W. on this one. I've always been seated and used to have back issues until my brother built a lazy Susan bench that stands 10 1/2" tall. The swivel came from Rockler and can hold 750 pounds, Ha! It works for most chairs except for larger pieces which I work on on my basement shop. There, I have a large wooden (flat) display case from an old JC Penny store. I used it for several years before raising it with 4 concrete blocks. It now stands 27" high and is 78" long and 30" wide, perfect for working while standing. When I sit to cane (which is the vast majority of the time) I sit on a small child's wooden school chair with a pillow cushion for comfort. This puts me in the perfect position to keep my back straight, thus no aches or pains. I hope to someday graduate to the excellent holding jigs that Katerine has. I covet them, Katherine! David W.
