Greg, you may also consider a Dewalt jobsite TS. They will do a lot. And
if you look in Craigslist you will see many TS on sale. The nice thing
about the Dewalt is the rack and pinion fence.. and the fences low bar,
for cutting narrow , thin stock. In a garage workshop you can pick it up
and put it to the side when not using it, and also just put it on a set
of saw horses when you need it, or a bench.
I quickly measured down from the office chair I was sitting in while I
was drawing it. It's probably more like 19. But that drawing is far from
a finished design in any case. It would be a good idea to try out some
heights, measure some chairs, etc.
Except for ADA requirements, there are no real standards, but the following
offers some good guidelines that are important when designing furniture for
use by others:
Is your office chair padded? Padding will be more comfortable if the
height is a bit high. If your legs are hanging over a hard edge you
might not be so comfortable. Any way our wooden dining room chairs with
no padding are just under 17.75" high. Just something to think about.
Furniture that you sit on/in needs to have more focus on comfort than
aesthetics if you plan to use it for that purpose.
