This is the height of my old workbench 33”. For me it was to low unless I was doing something like hand planing then it was fine. What make a good work bench height? I considered a few things:
1- What was I going to do most on the bench. For me that was not hand planning
2- How tall I am. At 6’-1” a 33” top is low
3- My eye sight. A high bench brought the work closer to my eyes
4- Will I be standing or sitting. I am on me feet all day at work, so on the weekends when I am in the shop I like to sit if I can.
The best way to know what height your work bench should be is try out different work heights.
Most kitchen countertops are 36”
Table saw is about 34” on most saws.
Dinning room table is 30”
I built my new bench at 37” as I am working on the tail vice it seem like a good height for me. If you are looking for a standard height, there is not one. That one reason we build it ourselves. Some have said that you can measure from the floor to the place where your pinky joins your hand (with your arm at your side) and that was a good workbench height. That did not work for me, my bench top would be at 30” if I used that method. Hope this info helps :)
