I think you need to first evaluate the height of the mobile benches you want to store below. Everybody is different of course but for me (5’9”) 30” would be the minimum height for a working bench. Add any tools that will permanently affixed to those and determine the bottom of your miter saw shelf.

I personally like to look down at my miter saw because I like to see the cut line (and I think it’s safer just from where the hands are). I think my miter saw bench is 35” high (leading to 39” cutting height). I would probably be ok with a few inches higher if I had to do it over.
