I would consider having the low end about 26 or even 24” and making the tall end 36-42” which means increasing the span it will raise and lower, but this way you could put something like an end table on your workbench and even at 18” tall, it would be 40-42” up which is more comfortable for sanding on than 48”

Just my 2 cents.

A concern was stability of the top if the supports are extended to far out of the frame. That is why I kept the extension to 12 inches but a low height of 24” would still work. Thatt it would limit the top height to about 36”. For my purposes I want a little more height than that.
Among other thoughts about it’s uses was as a left side support for my table saw when I’m cutting sheet goods by myself.

Lets hear from some more of you.

One more try to get more input on this project. I noticed it has drifted way back in the line up so I though I would add an entry to bring it forward.
