Hello Jeff,

Google "ergonomics typing desk height"  This assumes you'll be typing on 
a keyboard and not using a paddle.....I think those would be two 
different heights.

That should get you started.  You'll have to tweak those numbers based 
on your height and preferences.

One suggestion....I'm a woodworker.  You can buy very heavy duty 
adjustable leveling feet that will give you several inches of 
adjustment.  Again Google is your friend but you can probably start with:


Don't forget to figure in the thickness of the desktop.
