What router table height "in relation to your elbow" have you found to work best for you? IOW, how many inches is the top surface of your table below your elbow while standing, for good visibility, easy manipulation of the wood, and no back pain.
Since people's heights and arm lengths can vary, I was hoping to get the distance from the elbow to the tabletop in inches. Not table height in relation to the floor.
IOW, I'm trying to envision holding the wood (and/or pusher blocks) with my forearms somewhat parallel to the tabletop. Not having ever used a router table, I'm not sure if my forearms should be parallel to the top or at a slight downward angle.
Since I've read how much difference even a couple of inches in "workbench" height can make for hand planing and affect on the back, I thought I'd try not to re-invent the wheel and learn what experienced router table users liked.
Maybe some have their tabletops 4" below their elbow but wished the top was 2" lower. Stuff like that.
