Hi
I was wondering what people fought was a good workbench height to build on? With the large scale sized planes are most of you standing to build or sitting or both?

Thanks

I mostly stand... I'll measure my table when I get home but I think it's about 40"-ish.

My 4x8 Steel bench is 36" high and is too high for me to work on large scale. Fine for layout and fabrication. Will be replacing 6" casters with main frame leveling casters that will drop it 3". I put 30- 40% on adjustable height, folding work platforms that I adjust from 20" to 30". All personal preference according to what your back will tolerate. Stand on 1/2" soft mat too. Comfort is key.

I know that one. My motto going forward- whatever you think you need- DOUBLE IT! You'll be happier. It'll be a long while before I'm happier.

this one is 36" height. But I stand at 5'7" height. SO I am not tall. You do not want your bench too low, as it can cause back pain over time. IF you are taller person, consider this in making your choice for the height of the bench.


That little princess, by the way, is my 5 year old daughter, Victoria! (AND I am 45 years of age, late starter!!)
