My bench is 36" which allowed me to use it as an outfeed table for my table saw, router table, etc. I say "allowed' in the past tense because I sold my Ridgid TS and picked up a Unisaw which is only 34" tall. I could build a 2" base for the Uni to get it level with the workbench but since the TS isn't on a mobile base, I don't move it much anyway and it doesn't matter.
But I digress. The point I was trying to make is if your shop is small and you want to use your workbench as an infeed or outfeed table, make it the same height as your machine tables. That's assuming it's a comfortable working height for you.
