Default s6 Custom Furniture

Hi Guys, I need to improve my S6 Furniture.

The original s6 legs are too expansive to bring to Brazil, so I need to build a new custom "table" to hold it... Can someone help me with ideal finish height to the console? Like what is the ideal height on the last knob on 5 knob console? I guess the actual one I have, is too heigh and not ideal and I`m suffering from back pain.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

best

I use a geekdesk for my S6 M10 24. It's height adjustable so you can just move it to where it feels right or you can stand while working.

Considering an upgrade to the S6 console in the near future and I'm doing a preliminary search for the desk that will fit a M40-16-5-D configuration with Master Touch Module and Automation Module next to each other with 8 faders on each side.
