History of spanking furniture
For corporal punishment in prisons, reformatories and similar institutions, birching horses and similar devices were built. Schools such as Eton often had a birching block over which students were laid to be chastised.

Improvised spanking furniture
Many pieces of ordinary furniture - chairs, stools, pouffes, piano benches, barstools, tables, desks, couches, sofas, beds, etc - can be improvised to become spanking furniture by allowing the spankee to be positioned in a posture well-suited for spanking. Cushions, bolsters, rolled-up blankets, and pillows are often used to make the position more comfortable for lengthy sessions, as well as to enhance the spanking position by helping to raise the spankee's buttocks to a more spankable position.
Modern spanking furniture
In practice, spanking fans who need an item of spanking furniture, such as a spanking bench or a spreadeagle table, often build these themselves, or find a friend who is skilled in the crafts of carpenting, sewing, leatherworks and/or upholstering.
In BDSM play, bondage is popular to enhance the experience of a spanking. For example, the spankee can be bound to a St. Andrews Cross. Ropes, handcuffs, straps, belts, bondage tape and similar utilities can be used to restrain the spankee's arms and legs and to keep him or her tied in position.
