I built my layout with Mianne along a brick wall and two short peninsulas into the room using the 40" legs. The other two walls are a simple cantilever attached to the wall studs which after adding plywood and Homasote has a table top height of 43". Therefore, I put wooden blocks under the Mianne legs. I like the height because it allows me to easily roll around on a stool underneath and at 5' 11" I can reach the back. I have grades leading to an overpass; twice around arrangement. The level part at the highest point is 50" high. There is one spot that is a bit of a reach, but not bad. It works for me, but I acknowledge everyone is different.
