I’m leaning toward a mobile enclosed miter-saw cabinet with wings. Little more complicated than a bench, but the cabinet encloses the miter-saw and provides pretty good dust control as well as being out of the way when not needed.

I just don’t see the long bench staying clear most of the time in my shop. So everytime the miter-saw needs to be used, I can see having to move stuff around. Be it other portable stationary tools or materials.

The mobile dedicated cabinet solves that problem for me hopefully.

Not sure what the max safe working height would be. Most off the shelf miter saw stands are around 32” high, so that at least is a starting point. You said you are tall. If you are 2 inches taller than average than I would think 34”
at least if not higher.
