Why does the Torah teach about the Shulchan before the Menorah?

1.

Rashbam: Seeing as the main purpose of the Menorah was to illuminate the Shulchan, 1 it stands to reason to discuss the Shulchan first.

2.

Ba'al ha'Turim (38:1): It is due to "Zeh ha'Shulchan Asher Lifnei Hashem" (Yechezkel 41:22).
