    What is the height measurement on your main workbench? I plan on being seated most of the time. I'm thinking 36" is a little too high. Thinking about 34.

    depends on hgt of your chair.... I have 3 different benches...with 3 different chairs.... one for skinning and wheeling birds... one for mounting everything and another in paint booth.... just match chair to bench to be comfortable

    My benches are at 32 inches which is ideal for my height, I'm 5-7. No more back pain or neck pain. I also mounted my bird flesher on a portable, adjustable bed-side table to wheel it over to my bench and adjust the height to just above the bench so I can rest the turkeys or geese on the bench and my elbows as well.

    All depend 150% on how tall you are. I’m 5’5. So my bench height would kill most people backs
