I’m confused, is it already built or are you planning to build it?

If you are planning to build it, then like other said you should test out what height feels comfortable to you and modify the designs to fit how your body wants to work. In general, I believe the larger the pieces you work with, the lower the table should be, down to about tablesaw height (32-34”). So if you’re making small boxes, then 46” wouldn’t be totally unreasonable. If you’re trying to rout chamfers on an assembled blanket chest then that’s too tall (unless you are > 7’ tall).
