I am shopping around for a table for my GF and would like to share my scenario for input.
I am placing it under my window. It has a metal grill and the max table height that can fit under this grill is 990mm.
The basic glowforge ext dimension without air filter is 210mm
So Question 1 is, "should i place the GF at 990mmH or at 750~770mmH
750mmH is good for seated but im not going to be exactly seated in front of it so a high table would be good.

Next. Tables tend to shake and to have one that absolutely wont shake i can only think of complete weld shut metal tables and i kinda can’t afford that. I have been looking at solid wood tables with metal frame stable legs. I’m going to expect some shake likely regardless of what table i get.
Question 2 is thus, “How do I combat shake?”
Is it sufficient to install rubber at the table legs? But the table is still shaking. Will the shock absorbing rubber help? @Dan, Is the GF designed to work with minute shakes?

Q3, Material of table. Is it good to have wood?

@Dan, My metal grill max allowable diameter for the hose is 3.5"
Can the 4" hose be compressed to squeeze through it?
