After reading :
http://paulsellers.com/2012/10/the-long-and-short-of-bench-heights/
I tried to find what health and safety people recommend.
(Do we need to reinvent the wheel?)

The height recommended by Paul Sellers is the lower limit for what is recommended for “light work”; which is consistent with using hand tools for joinery, smoothing and scraping, the rough dimensioning being made with machines as he says he does (at least that is what I understand).

This 38” height for an average man corresponds approximately to the addition of the anterior superior iliac spine height and the shoe heel height.

If you are taller or smaller, you can find yourself where it is.
