As I ponder a woodworking bench at long last I'm considering what would would be best/best bang for the buck. My thought right now is to build to the Benchcrafted Roubo plans I have*. I have thought about using a hardwood base such as Ash or Soft Maple paired with a softwood top of some description. Good idea or not? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
* looked at a Nicholson style on and off but I think the wide aprons would interfere with when I need to sit on a stool to work.
** Acacia Hardwood is my local wood supplier and they have a website if your interested what I can get easily.
