Piano Chair Boxes

To adjust the height of your piano chair or bench


Advantages over adjustable piano stools: if you have several people using the same piano it's easy to see how many wood planks/blocks to stack under the chair for each person. And this should be very much cheaper.

Getting the right height is VITAL for good piano technique and avoiding injury (such as RSI).

Here are some tips if you want to make one of these:

  • Make it out of the lightest wood you can find so it's easy to move around.
  • Make it wider than your current chair to accommodate bigger chairs you may have in future.
  • Make it deeper than you currently need in case you need to elevate you chair higher sometime, or in case you get a chair which is a different height.

The dark brown planks shown below are harder and thinner, they give fractional graduations and protect the thicker planks, which are a softer wood.
