I am new to this post, so hope I am doing it correctly.
There have been several replies to my “dining bench” question.
To be clear this is a dining table sitting bench 6 ft. long.
But the table is 36 inch high as it serves as a work island also.

The bench needs to be pushed under the table when not in use.
So as I began the process of design, I realized that in needed to be about 25 in. tall, and it would be a tip over hazard. Hinged feet, castors and sandbags are not an option.

I am now of the opinion to suggest to the customer that they use separate stools for safety rather than a bench.
Anything wider than 16 inches would protrude from the table too far so it would not function as a work island to stand in front of.

Your efforts are appreciated, this forum is quite good.
thanks everyone
any other new ideas not suggested here already would be appreciated—
