I have decided on using LVL lumber for the bench top and 2×12’s for the support structure. I had to take a couple of weeks off while I decided on a new planner since my Delta gave up on me. I have purchased a Dewalt 13 inch with 3 blades (model 735 I think), it does a great job. I have now glued up the blanks for the legs and supports and brought them down to finished dimensions. I will start layout work today. I will take some pictures of my progress and post tonight.
